To Walk The Poet’s Path

To walk the poet’s path

is to see the beauty

in the narrow and in the broad,

 in the fall of one leaf

amid a forest of

Autumn trees,

in the tear within the heart-felt smile,

in the ant struggling to flee 

a burning yule log.

To walk the poet’s

path is to try to give words

to the wordless wonder that surrounds.
