stretched out to meet
the sea's edge
it lies on either hand
but the river is spent

this house is silent
and I've made amends
but I'm returning to these
foolish thoughts again

my noble cause fades
and feeble in its place
a catching glow

my native tongue delays
to find another way
but it's too late to show

if there's harm left to do in my stead
just let me know

the salt mines are coming
and I'm not around
the grind stone is running
and I won't be found
I've tried my hand
at this debt that I've made
and if there's harm left to do in my stead
I won't delay
