Happy Birthday Lex

Captain Carroll F. "Lex" LeFon Jr., U.S. Navy (retired)
09 November 1960 - 06 March 2012

Come, faeries, take me out of this dull house!
Let me have all the freedom I have lost;
Work when I will and idle when I will!
Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.

From The Land of Heart's Desire,
a play by William Butler Yeats
