As The Crow Flies – Caw # 5

By Dan Crow

The first week of March
Two Thousand and Ten
Time to do schools
In Las Vegas again

Old Route 66

Each year I’m invited
To sing and to speak
By the State of Nevada
For their Reading Week

A drive thru the desert
You cross the Mojave
With Joshua Tree cactus
And of course some Agave

The route that I take
Is on Old 66
It once was a main road
But is now in the sticks

Railroad Depot In Kelso CA

Old Railroad Depots
For the Union Pacific
The station in Kelso
Is really terrific

For 300 hundred miles
You see many features
Tarantulas rattle snakes
And various creatures

Cones made of cinder
And sand dunes that talk
And watch Desert Tortoises
How slowly they walk

The desert is quiet
Where beauty is found
Then off to Las Vegas
Where noises abound
