Poetry Pairing: Travel

I'll be visiting Steepletop, Edna St. Vincent Millay's home, soon, and thought a pairing with her poem "Travel" would be appropriate for this week.

"Yet there isn't a train I wouldn't take
No matter where it's going."

Where is your train taking you? Mine is on it's way here:

I'll close with a piece by Jonah Lehrer on the "secret tonic of creativity" and "Why we travel."

I'll be on a blog break through June. Wishing everyone happiness wherever your travels take you!


  1. Enjoy your trip! Let us know about it once you return.

  2. Have a wonderful "blog break"! Trains - a nice way to travel.

    1. Thanks, Kathleen. I need to unplug. Wishing you a lovely weekend!

  3. Enjoy your trip! I hope you have fun!
