Let us just keep things this way
And not forward move nor backward go
Let every day be just like this day
A restless peace, and no one to know.
Let us wander on a path that’s winding
No signpost at bridge and bend
Never seeking and so never finding
That place which asks of us an end.
Let us not reason our faith in feeling
Dwell in dreams as much as deed
Trust in time—that’s always stealing
But sometimes give to those in need.
As time must move—we may as well be still
And let it take us where it will.

Beginning this week, we’ll have a slot dedicated to poetry.
