My Word of the Month poem

Hi everyone,

Here’s my Word of the Month poem inspired by our word: ZONE. I hope to see a lot more poems before the end of the month. So far we have eight thanks to Cory Corrado, Jeanne Poland, Bryn Strudwick, Jane Yolen, William Joe Pyles, Robert Schechler, Elizabeth Neubauer,, and Jane Heitman Healy.

The Road

Together down the road we go.
Where we’re going we don’t know.
Most prefer it nice and slow.
Some are in a hurry though.

Those who like a slower gait
Have no sense of running late.
If now and then they pause to wait,
The fun of getting there is great.

For others slowpokes make them groan.
Winning is all they’ve ever known.
To get there fast and first, alone,
They live inside the passing zone.

Together down the road we go.
Where we’re going we don’t know.
Most prefer it nice and slow.
Some are in a hurry though.
