The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
Green Eggs and Old La Honda
(ode to Mark Anderson)
Not on a switchback
Not with a heart attack
Not on a hot day
Not with a breakaway
It will not beat you here or there.
It will not beat you anywhere.
