A map of childhood

You are here
Where is your soul?
Behind those ancient mountains
So dreary unseen

Or what terror claims your heart
You cannot tell North from South?

Where does that thick reddish road
Lead to your left?
What cities await your slow withdrawal
Still urging still purging

As yet unreached horizons
Clearly labelled
Just beyond the water
Are yours

You can’t reject them
Can you?
