Far off places

By James Moore Hodur

 

Tell me of far off places

Places both ancient and mythical

Roads where silk and perfumes traveled down

Places both beautiful and fearsome.

 

Tell me of far off places

Let my mind’s eye wander amongst the wonders

Places of colors and sounds

Roads both winding and long

Places of many voices and songs.

 

Tell me of far off places

Places filled with so many faces

Roads that lead to adventure and legend

Places where my heart can be free

Roads to fill my soul

Faces to greet me and welcome me...home.
