More lines from a thank you note…

Thanks also… for dirt paths that disappear from the road
thanks for uncut forest land
and for every mite and stallion abiding there
for steepness in hills and fields beyond where trees can grow
for flat rock to lay upon beneath sun and moon
and circles of stars inside the black night
configured outside all imagination unchanged ever by issues of man
thanks for the touch of bare feet against dirt
a hand to shield sunshine from my eye for the feel of sun against my cheek
thanks for a place to be even if in dream untouched by pavement and electronic signal
thanks for geese in southern flight
for sight to see them for breath

Many thanks
