The Crossing

Hsia Shu Kwei, long before she became Grandma Leu.

 The Crossing 

About to launch my loaded canoe,
Geared now for the upwind crossing, 
Three things only do I assure,
I am not afraid of dying, 
I am not ready yet to yield,
I will be with you all again,
Beyond this hard and beautiful journey.
     – Ned Sharples (1934-1996)
