On the Shores of Walden Pond

The baptismal font known as Walden Pond.
You were born
to be dipped
in the waters of
Walden Pond

Wherever life
may lead you
Rest assured
That you are guided
and protected
by those gentle souls
that came before you
Emerson, Thoreau and more

Reach for the stars
in the spring
and let the clouds
cushion your dreams

Follow the glow
of the firefly
in the summer
as it will light the way for you

Trust the rustle
of leaves underfoot
in the autumn
for they will steer you
in the right direction

May the love in your heart
keep you warm
in the winter
and never leave you broken and cold

Be one with your environment
in all seasons
for if you leave it a better place
it will leave you in a better place

You were born
to be dipped
in the waters of
Walden Pond

Wherever life
may lead you
Rest assured
That you are guided
and protected
by those gentle souls
that came before you
Emerson, Thoreau and more
