Are We There Yet


Are we there yet; where we long to be
The ship can only ferry us across the Nile
The mile in-between is ours to do
the walking to where we long to be

Are we there yet; where we long to be
Across the blue where the sky ties
faded blue ribbons across a flawless white
And the rainbow appears in the distance

Are we there yet; where we long to be
Across the land in the distance we see
Where the sun smiles in the face of the lake
And children take a dip with bubbles of laughter


We left our farmlands to search for a new world; here we are
thousand of miles from our home still we're not there yet

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
