Today I have the wish to wander.
Down Goethe’s path I choose to go
with a world of thought to ponder.
Where I might end up - I do not know.
I meander with a little stream.
All around me, myriads of trees
stand like seers; serene and sage they seem.
The stream’s sweet murmur carries on the breeze.
Something fresh! A rumble I can hear.
This rumble has a soothing quality;
my prior musings start to disappear.
The source of this new sound I have to see!
Goethe’s path has led me to a secret place.
Clear water is cascading into a lake.
There is no world of thought when facing grace.
Embracing bliss, I have a plunge to take~
