Explore the ode that draws your heart
Beyond each boundary your steps avoid :
Be they state or city, country or ocean,
Wanderlust drives the proverbial bus.
Go west, or east, south, or north : a compass
Is all a cowboy needs, except real friends.
Just as easy as years roll on and on, you
Don't walk or run but journey in trail rides.
What binds you to some permanence of place
Are, as in the strength of spider webs, well spun.
Filaments of heart strings are the closest to the
Fibers that bind one to another and to your family.
Love, Pop Pop & Nanny !
Happy Birthday, wherever you roam !
