i think i'd like to go far away
where no one has gone before
over the farthest mountains
along an empty shore

and walk along forever
but never round the bend
where the ocean meets the river
the river that never ends

and stop beneath a shady tree
to listen to the rain
that plays on the leaves a melody
that will never be heard again

"walk along forever but never around the bend" ..... I loved this line.

the whole piece has a wistful and ironic feel to it, a tease that I know is a tease, a thing sought and necessarily out of reach.

enjoyable; thanks.
