As if it were the last evening before a long, long journey:
You have the ticket in your pocket and finally everything is packed.
And you can sit and sense the nearness of the distant land,
sense how all is in all, both its end and its beginning,
sense that here and now is both you departure and return,
sense how death and life are as strong as wine inside you!

(Gunnar Ekelöf, Färjesång 1941)
