I walk for exercise and inspiration,
for health and maintenance, and for my moods,
I walk to be in nature – with trees and flowers and clouds,
to be part of my species – I join the walking crowds.
I walk because that’s what I do,
I walk to dream, to meditate, reflect and freely think,
I walk because it’s practical and easy to get from A to B,
I walk at dawn and dusk to know my immortality.
I walk and talk because it eases words,
I walk to hear the birds and feel the breeze,
I walk to laugh at squabbling crows and think philosophy
I walk because I live and love my life.
