Set Sail

by Starhawk and Mara June Quicklightning
Listen to SetSail

Set sail, set sail
Over the waves where the spray blows white
Into the night, into the night

Set sail, set sail
Turn your face where the veil grows thin
Beyond the rim, beyond the rim

Set sail, set sail
Follow the twilight to the West
Where you may rest, where you may rest

Set sail, set sail
Make of your heart a burning fire
Build it higher, build it higher

Set sail, set sail
Pass in an instant through the open gate
It will not wait, it will not wait
Set sail, set sail
One thing gives way to another
In the Mother, in the Mother

Set sail, set sail
Back through the deep where life comes undone
And is begun, and is begun

Set sail, set sail
Over the dark of the sunless sea
You are free, you are free

Set sail, set sail
To the shining isle where your heart is led
We meet the dead, we meet the dead

Set sail, set sail
