As today is national poetry day, here is today’s last sonnet of the Camino –

Why are you walking, oh, why are you walking?
Where are you going and what is your way?

To learn how to trust in the things of the moment,
that is the reason I’m walking today.

Why are you walking, oh, why are you walking?
What is your purpose and why no delay?

To learn to be thankful for each day’s provision,
to find that enough is enough for each day.

Why are you walking, oh, why are you walking?
What is the reason and where is the way?

To learn how to stop, is the reason I’m walking,
the reason I’m leaving, to learn how to stay.

Oh, why don’t you join me, and we’ll walk together,
each step a blessing and each road a way.
