I open my eyesit was dark an coldI could see a riverthe water was coldfar away I could see a boatit's old and black
There stands a man on itwith a long black coatgot his cowl over the headhe gave me his hand and said"Come with mewe have waitet for you."I went into his boatthere was nothing elseI could do-
We drove very longto an far away islandhe didn't said asingle word
Then we arived andgot off the boathe turns around to meand asked"Do you know where you are?""No, I said."
"I'm the ferrymanand this is the gate to hell."
