City of four seasons,
of a year passing in one day’s changes
when all the earth’s emotions gather,
where winds from the south fall
as the dust of Araby.
North feels the bite of the bear.
Rain tastes like tears of departure.
Here is where the world divides,
where oceans become mountains.
The road beyond is beginning
to lead the traveller to follow
what the eye cannot see,
but the heart believes
as surely as sea surrounds us.
