Read me and remember

Read me and remember

Free souls travel best alone,
Like eaves before the wind,
not tender,
But fiercely, stormly blown.
Read me and remember
A ship on a storm tossed sea,
Lives but a while in splendor,
The rest in eternity.
But I would not trade the splendor,
That is mine on the crest of the wave,
For the moments you call so tender
That would bind me and enslave.
