Sunset and the sky is gray
Airplane motors humming away
The highway is an endless trail
Words are carried in the mail

Words can devour peace of mind
Appearing suddenly from behind
To haunt our vacant memories
In lurking shrouds of vagaries

Time will pass and I shall see
What tomorrow holds for me
Direction in my thoughts is lost
Until each destination is crossed

Waiting as the time does pass
Surely this life is not the last
Since the end we cannot see
We must be in eternity

Floating through infinity
Like a boat upon the sea
Clouds are moving in the sky
Unknown is the reason why

To look eternity in the face
To see infinity within a space
One must be more than a brain
More than flesh that drinks rain

Meanwhile I have some time to kill
Think I will watch the whippoorwill
Who does not worry to live in strife
But sings to make the best of life
