Seen fine buildings
Stood at the graves of
Famous men and women.
But there are places I have never been
That call to my heart.
I would stand on the Acropolis,
And think on the great continuum
Three thousand years of history
Bearing the name of the goddess of wisdom.
I would go to London
And muse on on the great people of history
Who walked these streets
Kings and queens
Artists,actors and writers.
I would go to Hungary
And find some of the family
My grandfather left behind
When he boarded the boat for America.
And I would go to Ireland
From whence my mothers people came.
No place calls to my soul more...
In their honor I would touch the sod.
