Passport


“To become a citizen of the
world,” she said.

Ahh, for that’s a pride
Of human spirit
That no woven tapestry
Of flag or political fodder
Can truly father

Be your own man
Some day

And travel the globe
Far and away

Be here now
Not forever and a day

Set sail on the ivy shore
Of tomorrow’s door

Climb the towers
Of Babylon
And Peter’s gate

Make your peace
With all of man today

Know your world
Round and blue

And always come back home
Where your heart be
Through and through
Forever true
