All Oceans Lead Homewards

Austurvegur
by Stephan G. Stephanson


I put to sea from home,
for homeward I am bound.
My fatherland before me,
I leave my fosterland.
From the firm land's calm
my moorings I cast,
O blustery, blue deep
bound for your wide swell.

You, Sea, are my shipmate!
Now by your side I share
as a partner in the sky
and the world's every shore.
All oceans lead homewards.
Though the sea swamps your bows
you are travelling the fjord
between family's prints.
