Our Appian Way

Rolling beyond the oblivion
Reaching over the horizon
Mile upon mile of paved way
Sees me drive off and away

The wheels spin tirelessly around
Allowing me to glide over the open lands
Across fields and prairies without bounds
On a highway of four wide and mighty lanes

And as the cool breeze parted at my face
As I sped forward in both night and day
In rain, storm, fog, shine or seasonal grace
I felt forever grateful for this Appian Way!
