Fresh Air

May 17, 2008
By Savannah Carlstrom, Davenport, IA

Take a moment to go beyond
Stepping outside
And step outside yourself
To the solidity of the ground
That holds the roots
Of a climbing tree
Whose branches support
An adventurous child
Who reaces for the top
Where the fresh budding leaves
Stretch to the sky
That holds the bright lit sun
Who warms you completely through
As you take a moment to go beyond
Stepping outside
And step outside yourself
