beyond this horizon/

to
go beyond the ninth wave
become irresponsible
a day
a month
a lifetime
to grasp those fey hours
without consequence
ahh -- what torrid fantasies 
nighttime breeds

And what you’ve not to do is this: bite no bit, and drink no drop, however hungry or thirsty you be; drink a drop, or bite a bit while in Elfland you be and never will you see Middle Earth again.

The Ballad of Childe Rowland
