Mid-Summer's Walk

Mid-Summer's Walk by Dana Stone

Whose woods these are
i think i know
the hills look steep and dense although
my hiking shoes and moxy strength
can guide me along the strenuous path

I moved here two years ago
and wanted to explore this path although
other plans kept getting in my way
so i decided to take the hike today

i boldly set to clear a path
i calculated long, did the math
took a step and then another
down to the murkey swamp

the woods are mine
they're behind my home
i decided to make them all my own
it's quiet there
a Dickinsian spot
a place to where i'll return
