A Burst of Verse

Ode to Ascent

Uphills I sure used to hatecha
Sweating and straining just isn’t my natecha

These days I just smile
Rolling mile after mile
 
On my ebike I go there
Shop, work, play – everywhere
 
These days I’m more fit
Getting outdoors quite a bit
 
And skipping my car saves the Earth
Giving my soul a sense of rebirth
 
I love the fresh air
With the wind in my hair
 
Cause utter joy is not just descent
My love for UP is now evident
 
So, show me the hills
Both ways give me thrills
 
To those biking doubts I had but don’t keep
I now say “Bring on the STEEP!”
