A Rocky Road - Poem by Edward Iacona

Edward Iacona

My darling sent this quote to me.
She wrote it down in Latin,
A Language that one does not hear
Even in Mid-Town Manhattan.

"Per aspera ad astra."
Means, with loose translation,
"A rough road leads to the stars",
Which I read with fascination.

Our challenge is one of distance
And not one of direction.
We require something more tactile
And not of Astral Projection.

Bureaucracy may blow us,
Like the wind does to a feather
We may become re-directed
Within this world to the nether.

We shall try to stay the course
In bad and stormy weather.
Then to explore our new universe
As it should be... together!
