On Jouney


I’d like to be off to France,

But France is so frightfully far,

At the least though, I’ll pick out a brand new suit,

And mount on a trip carefree.

When the train starts up the overpass,                              5

I’ll lean on the azure window

And think happy thoughts alone,

This May day at dawn,

Leaving it all to the new-grass-sprouting heart.
