17 Mar 2016 – The Call

Friends, you hear the highway calling,
all about you stars are falling!
You knew someday you’d be taking –
from the moment of your waking –
this road, and there’d be no other.
Neither mother, nor your brother,
there to keep your soul from sailing
high above men’s futile scalings.
So beholding Earth below you,
mountains merely stones in clear view,
you yourself seen for the first time:
a single drop in seas sublime!
