Rabbit Holes

Pardon me, kind Sir.

It seems yet again

I’ve taken many a twist

And yet another turn

Our destination won’t likely come

As we planned with the setting sun

But we shall get there

I don’t mean to linger

Or wander along the way

But so much beauty lies around each bend

And I know your aim is industrious

But if you would be so kind

To indulge a wandering mind

We’ll reach the journey’s end in due time

But cool rivers seem to beckon toes

And hills long to be climbed

And this beautiful tree bends her boughs

To make this perfect spot to recline

Duty calls and deadlines screech

But can’t we for but a day

Take in the treasures along the path

Enjoy adventure along the way

Because the day becomes the night becomes the day

And soon

The bones will be too frail to leap

In and out of the rabbit holes

So let’s take it all in before we sleep
