I took the road

Not knowing where it would lead

Trusting it fully

And ready to heed

It took me through woods

Calm and serene

It showed me lakes

And meadows green

At times it welcomed me

With carpets of blossoms white and yellow

Some times the snow on it

Forced my speed to mellow

It admonished me

For hurrying through the sights

Not stopping by the river

That gurgled past least in spite.

It climbed up hills

Arousing my child like curiosity

To know what lay beyond,

A moor or a city

In winter, spring and autumn

It unfolded a new picture

All distinct from each other

But in no way less awesome

The roads prodded me

To move on in life

And not be bogged by

Any sort of strife…..
