PALACE OF EXILE
by Jim Morrison
For seven years I dwelt in the loose palace of exile
Playing strange games with the girls of the island
Now I have come again to the land of the fair
And the strong, and the wise
Brothers and sisters of the pale forest, children of night
Who among you will run with the hunt?
Now night arrives with her purple legion
Retire now to your tents and to your dreams
Tomorrow we enter the town of my birth
I want to be ready
One thought on “I want to be ready”
Jim Morrison is an underappreciated poet. He embodied the Dionysus spirit in his performances, lyrics, poetry & voice. Sorely missed, but can be found through his music & writings.
