The Sun kissed me goodbye
With a parting ray and left me
To walk the woods alone
Through green into gray.
Some say you can't see
The stars for the rain, but
Come what may, I will follow them
Until I find the Sun, see her light
And feel her warmth again.
I composed this while backpacking on the North Country Trail. The trail's symbol, which appears on its signposts, is Polaris: the North Star.
