Fifth - Poem by Frederick Kesner

the road stays while we move onward

yet connects from our here to there
this life's complications on it unwind

by it we return homeward-bound, trusting:

a trick we learned from Gretel & Hansel
assured that it is safe to venture out

while we move forward, roads stay put
