Come Fly with Me, Sammy

Sammy, I want to take you and yours to a special place of comfort and joy. Knowing you love poetry, too, I attached my poem as explanation of how and why it is so special to me. I hope you enjoy it. You are in our thoughts and prayers. ❤

Take me back to where strong winds blow
while eagles soar high, with nature below.
Take me to the mountain, far up north, 
where lakes meet sky and legends pour forth.
Take me where man and beast live side by side,
where there is no fear, and peace can reside.
I need to know there are bears and deer,
and that they, like I, have a right to be here.
I want to see where wildlife lives,

where nature not only takes, but gives.
I want to be where ancient trees grow,
where the autumn sun makes the mountain glow; 
in spring and summer the trees are green,
and winter snow is deep and clean.
I want to be where beauty astounds,
where singing birds are natural sounds,
where lighthouses call the sailors home
from Gichi-Gami’s evening gloam.
I can go back only in memory today,
but my spirit lives there, up on Brockway.
