Walk Through


Walk through Los Angeles to breathe in the smog
Walk through London to get lost in the fog
Walk through Seattle to get drenched by the rain
Walk through Gaza to feel the pain
Walk through New York to remember the towers
Walk through D.C. to feel the power
Walk through Cairo to travel time
Walk through Athens to follow the line
Walk through Jerusalem to weep with the walls
Walk through Detroit to watch as it falls
Walk through New Orleans as the waters recede
Walk through Mogadishu to experience need
Walk through Bagdad to see the war
Then Walk through Kandahar to see some more

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
