Which Style (con't)

Earlier I posted about trying to find a style and layout that fits a quote. You can see them here.

This style and layout has come closer to my feeling of of the quote. Although, I realized I had the words a little mixed up:) The exact quote reads: "The boundary lines for me have fallen in pleasant places." So far I have not written the exact words. Sometimes I wonder about my ability to remember. haha

This layout was written with sumi ink and a Speedball B1.

Which Style for Quote

I have been playing in the studio today with a quote that has been in my head for the last few days. 
"My boundary lines have fallen in pleasant places."
I have created several rough sketches but am having a hard time finding a layout 
that works for the way I feel about the quote. 

Which do you like?
