Paths take us where they will....
Along steep trails....by waters still.
Or through the orchard....where apples fall...
Or through the woods....where doves may call.
Or through the by-ways of the heart
Where all our hopes and yearnings start,
Where paths are often hard to find,
Because our LIKES and DISLIKES wind
With OTHERS' hopes and dreams entwined.
Paths take us where they will,
And though in danger...we may be;
Most treacherous of the paths we'll find?
Those weaving through the human mind.
