The Thinking Poet



Birthdays should remind us,

Not of fleeting time,

But of a journey marked by milestones,

Each one a reason for rejoicing.


Better to travel hopefully,

Than to arrive.

Better still to share the joy of both:

Life's peregrination,

And its destination;

And to know them as the same.


Heaven is our journeying,

Our goal and blessed goad.

Heaven's all about us

On the road.
