some notes toward a song of the folkie persuasion--

Miles and Years

From here to there
Is the length of a road,
Miles and years,
Miles and years;

All we can carry
Is the weight of our load,
Miles and years
to go.


From dawn to dusk
Is the span of a day,
Miles and years,
Miles and years;

And birth to death
Measures our way,
Miles and years
to go.


From lover to lover,
From husband to wife,
Miles and years,
Miles and years;

From a man to a woman
Is the distance of life,
Miles and years,
Miles and years,
Miles and years
to go.
