Two woods diverge in a yellow wood, and I- I took the one less traveled. And it has made all the difference. -Robert Frost


My favorite song will be a melody I cannot memorize,
A lyric I cannot read,
A sound so dazzling to mine ears,
Yet in the mind cannot make a vibrant sound alike.


My favorite song will put the stars in mine eyes,
Hermes to my feet,
And colors into the black and white pictures that hang on the sky wall.


So blank we look past and pretend to look upon color,
For we imagine in color,
Yet think in black and white.


So I cry,
From the tallest mountain I can climb,
For I dare not judge the mountains,
And look below my feet.


My arms spread warm with the sun that blinds,
Cold with the force that breathes.
It blows be away.


My favorite song,
Is the earth itself,
A carpet beneath my feet.


The author's comments:
The inspiration for this was said by someone who in themselves inspired me so much. 'I look at the ground where my father's feet have walked and I think to myself, if I am standing on ground, that it is a carpet, and that we all follow it in our constant ascend into heaven.'
