There and Here, by Dylan Tortoise

~There and Here, by Dylan Tortoise~

 

I will never see the sea.
It's much too far a trip for me.

 

By the time I put my feet in sand
I would be aged one-hundred-ten.

 

I will never find the giant redwood stands.
They're far away in distant lands.

 

If I started now to go to them
I might get there when I'm one-hundred-ten.

 

I'll never stroll a great city street.
Walking to it would wear out my feet.

 

If I started now I would get there when

I turn one-hundred-ten.

 

Luckily for me I'm happy beside my pond.
To arrive here I simply wake-up, stretch, and yawn.
