i found this quote in City of Bones, i believe, by Cassandra Clare the quote is:

"The measure of love is to love without measure."
--Saint Augustine


Onto Oregon City is were we want to be
Red, white & blue flags hang aloft some wagon trains
Eatting beans on the trail is good with meat, bread, & dried fruit as well
Gone to Oregon or California or to Santa Fe for some
Onword bound is what we are
Non-stop walking for days and days

Towns are few but land is more
Rail roads are none...for now
Air is filled with dust all around
In winter we await the spring
Loving the new land the trail is done...for some.

Shade, Thank you for your comment.   This was a school assignment and one of the first poems i have written. My newer ones have more of a point to them. You are more than welcome to view those. --Scarlet

I like it okay. It's okay. I just don't see the point.
