The Road to Abiquiú


The route we take to Abiquiú

is really each one’s own option.


It’s known there’s few but one road new

that’s likely to win one’s adoption.


The interstate is fast and straight

and time is a favorite factor.

To navigate the roads we take

can bind and break a lifelong trait

of the constant easy path-taker.


Life is a journey to the end, a gurney;

it’s short and sweet, but sometimes late,

why live one’s life with chronic ill hate,

when there’s choices each one can readily make?


The route we take to Abiquiú,

of which there’s more than one option,


we know of a few, but take one new!

and the journey will brighten and broaden.
