a simple truth...

"that people could come into the world

in a place they could not at first even name

and had never known before;

and that out of a nameless and unknown

place they could grow and move

around in it until it's name they knew

and called with love, and call it HOME,

and put roots there and love others there;

so that whenever they left this place

they would sing homesick songs about it

and write poems of yearning for it..."
