I am From…
I am from the white mountain tops
From the big blue house and the big green hills
I am from the two story palace
and the blue castle
I am from the rich earth
Whose soil cradles me
I am from the deserts and the forest
From Mom, Dad, and Chris
And from The Atchison family and the Grayhackle Pond
From the Wednesday movie night.
I am from the falling tree
From lasagna and sushi
From the smiles on Christmas Day
And from the ship going to America and the Binky Bear in my crib.
I am from the moments from my past and my present; I am from the white mountain tops.
