I walk a path most every day


Along the road of Campus Way

Out through the covered bridge I stroll


In wind and rain and fog and snow

The countryside. The gentle breeze 


Herons, pastures, many trees

Hawks and kestrels in the skies


In summertime, there’s butterflies

Joggers jog and bluebirds cheep


The old professor tends his sheep

It’s important, having reached December


To remind myself to stop, remember

I love this place, it feeds my soul 


The sky, the land, each rabbit hole

No nearby place that I’m aware of 


Deserves to be better taken care of
