Hello Vermont

Hello Vermont

Hello country roads

Hello community greens

Hello small schools woven like blood vessels

our hearts

Hello farms, courageous innovators

Hello mountains and rivers and sugarbush

Hello townspeople under one roof

trying to make sense of the non-sense

 

Hello Vermont

what choices

will you make today

Hello Vermont

is there only one path

only one path

 

Hello Vermont

I am a child

and I am not afraid

do not cover me

with your fear

do not cover me

I do not live well

when covered

I must be able

to move, freely

I must be able to

exclaim loudly

and walk anywhere

on the earth

and show my children

what it means to live

 

Hello Vermont

will we be as wild as you

will we step off the path

and lose ourselves in your woods

in your mountains

in your spirit

will we step off the path

and realize we are ok

and then realize we have

much work to do

and many children to love

will we step off the path

and lose ourselves

and be on our way

finally

finally

finally

to being found.

 

My god!  My God!

will we step off the path!
