Have a Safe Trip

“Where are you rushing to?
Asked the goat’s-thorn of the breeze
Don’t you want to take a trip away
From the dust of this wilderness?
-“ I am all desire, but,
No hope, since I am shackled here"

“Where are you rushing to?”
-“to any better home than this home…”

-“Have a safe trip, but, for the sake of our friendship,
and for God’s sake,
When you have safely passed this fearsome desert,
Give the blossoms, give the rain,
Our regards… ”
