When we travel life's highway Who's counting the cost As we follow like sheep to the fold? All our hearts seem content At not getting lost Yet we're happy to go where we're told. We should explore all life's footpaths And climb all its stiles To "an air that no longer kills" Where our lives and our freedoms Shine plainly for miles Past "yon farms" and "lost spires" and "blue hills". *** Brian Strand's Select D Poetry Contest: Honourable Mention
