Poem Walking Ways

Walking Ways         

Change can come in small ways,
Note by note and chord by chord.
Joy can come in small ways
To the wrathful and the bored.
And to the sorrowing,
And to the fearful heart I sing,
May you call to Life and hear her answering.

Turn around and down another road
You find your mind is hurled,
I am walking ways of wisdom
Word by word across this world,
I am singing lays of learning
Step by step across this land,
And my harpstring is an arrow string
And truth flies from my hand.

Walking through the village
Where war hovers in my sight,
Young men spit and bristle
And make ready for a fight,
I sing of wandering far,
Of searching for that shining star,
May you learn that things
Arent’s always what they are.

Turn around and down another road
You find your mind is hurled,
I am walking ways of wisdom
Word by word across this world,
I am singing lays of learning
Step by step across this land, Walking Ways
And my harpstring is an arrow string
And truth flies from my hand.

Kings have little time to listen,
Little wish to hear,
Send the words a-spiraling,
Can’t help but draw them near,
Through weary years I call,
A moment when the burdens fall,
And the vision comes of hope for each and all.

Turn around and down another road
You find your mind is hurled,
I am walking ways of wisdom
Word by word across this world,
I am dancing like a tree
That gives its pollen to the wind,
Like a seed that roots in fields
Where its kind has never been,
I am sowing lays of learning
Step by step across this land,
And my harpstring is the future
Strumming gently in my hand.
