Just prior to my first Camino, I was given this gift from someone on this forum:
I loved it then and I understand it much better now.
I pass it on to the next generation of peregrinos.
This is a lovely poem. I have known it for some years. I think it was a lovely gift to receive, and you walked yourself into it...literally.

Beautiful poem which I hadn’t heard before and very appropriate for the Camino.

This is a great poem, and one that was a favorite of Jackie Kennedy and was read at her funeral.
