There Must Be A Poem For The Open Road

Poem By Shalom Freedman

There must be a poem for the open road
For the distances
For the dream of a beginning
Which even in old age
Holds the soul-

There must be a poem for the open road
The new day
The beginning
The distance
The hope
of what is far from here
I begin to move toward now.

And with that poem- hope
However absurd-
So even if I despair
