A gentle rain transforms the Lambertville towpath into a mirror that reflects the lowering clouds and lifeless trees. A cool mist drifts up from the Delaware Canal and cloaks the path ahead. A thick carpet of dead leaves on each side provides the only warmth in this dull, gray landscape.

A Poem Inspired by

"Dreary Path"

The weather may be dreary
The day may be dark
Neither stops Intrepid Traveler
About to embark
 
Some wait for sunshine
Others balk at rain
But for Intrepid Traveler
All weather is the same
 
No cold is too bitter
No wind is too chill
For the Intrepid Traveler
Has an indomitable will
 
He cannot keep from going
She cannot stay indoors
For the Intrepid Traveler
A walk a day restores
 
A myriad of puddles
A cold and muddy mess
Won’t keep Intrepid Traveler
From walking any less
 
She may find it lonely
He may find it long
But for Intrepid Traveler
Walking keeps them strong
