Thread: journey poetry
Hey guys i found this poem on Ken Kifer's long distance pedal bicycling site that also has numerous excellant tips for us motor assisted long distance enthusiasts
With a host of furious fancies
Whereof I am the commander,
With a burning spear and a horse of air
To the wilderness I wander.
By a knight of ghosts and shadows
I summoned am to tourney
Ten leagues beyond the wide world's end,
Methinks it is no journey.
--- from "Tom O'Bedlam" (Anonymous)
his site is http://www.kenkifer.com/bikepages/touring/
By the way last May i scheduled 2 weeks holiday to tour the length of Vancouver island with my happy times (unhappy times ) 50cc engine --in Victoria the mounting studs cut thru the frame and the chain cut thru the frame too--my friend Beast 775 (Mark ) there pointed this out to me and saved my bacon --shortly thereafter the engine seized up it would have been totally expensive to get back if it had broken down away from civilization and also dangerous--this year i will use my Subaru - Robin Staton Inc.setup
I don't care when the sun goes down
Where I lay my weary head.
Green, green valley or rocky road;
It's there I'm gonna make my bed.
and more ---
Under a willow, there we will rest,
Watching the fading light.
Earth for a pillow, dreams that are blessed,
Darkness enfolding the night.
of course at this time of year it is easy to dream !!
