Just because…

…I really liked it.

This goes for all those who are not Kiwis and therefore not necessarily familiar with this very famous New Zealand poet.


Alone we are born
And die alone
Yet see the red-gold cirrus
Over snow-mountain shine.

Upon the upland road
Ride easy, stranger
Surrender to the sky
Your heart of anger.

James Baxter, High Country Weather
