Travel

Updated on August 18, 2012

Beethoven - Ode to Joy

These journeys lead to places

That are so far away



Lost in vast, endless oceans

of buildings & people

Seeming so strange

Where do we go?

No, let us not stay in this paradise maze



A strange, falling sky somewhere in

California…

America! Why America?

Or someplace, somewhere in Italy



It feels like fire or electricity

& a burning jolt of desire

In aching hands, & restless feet

We tire, we tire, we tire!



Think of wild dreams in the sun

& ghosts of places & people left behind.
