Where Am I Going?

“Spring Morning,” a poem from the collection of works titled, “The World of Christopher Robin” Written By A. A. Milne. Published in 1958.

Where am I going? I don’t quite know.
Down to the stream where the king-cups grow-
Up on the hill where the pine-trees blow-
Anywhere, anywhere. I don’t know.

Where am I going? The clouds sail by,
Little ones, baby ones, over the sky.
Where am I going? The shadows pass,
Little ones, baby ones, over the grass.

If you were a cloud, and you sailed up there,
You’d sail on the water as blue as air,
and you’d see me here in the fields and say:
“Doesn’t the sky look green today?”

Where am I going? The high rooks call:
“It’s awful fun to be born at all.”
Where am I going? The ring-doves coo;
“We do have beautiful things to do.”

If you were a bird, and lived on high,
You’d lean on the wind when the wind came by,
You’d say to the wind when it took you away:
That’s where I wanted to go today!”

Where am I going? I don’t quite know.
What does it matter where people go?
Down to the wood where the blue-bells grow-
Anywhere, anywhere. I don’t know.

A beautifully conceptualized idea of life. Just as the Beatles sang in their song titled, “All You Need Is Love” from the album Yellow Submarine, “There’s no where you can be that isn’t where you are meant to be.” I must agree with both of these pieces of art. I believe that where ever you are, in that moment you are impacting the life of another person simply by existing. It is a wonderful thing to know that your presence in this moment or the next is changing the world.
