'All of north and south, all of east and west' by Brenda Cook

North South East West

Guide us to the places we have to go

The different landings, the stations, the arrivals:

Finding our way to the heart of each community.


Then there is the big heart we are trying to reach

The heart of the world that is at the centre of all things.

It is not an easy journey

There are no directions and we never know

If we will get there

It is the tricky bit of our maps

The place we have to work for

Never arriving but always moving

Never stopping and always knowing

It is all of north and south, all of east and west

All the places we visit and every person that we meet.
