Farewell to Rod Donald from the Bay of San Francisco

Continuation ...

With one more hour
another day perhaps
a time of concentration
we could rise up
surpass, surprise ourselves
and all of our ambitions
maybe even thrust
an unclenched fist
through an empty cloud
or pass a golden galaxy
and with some patience
and no little practice
even touch the lower sky.

- Rod McKuen, from We Touch the Sky, 1978
