The Streets of San Francisco

What goes up,

must come down.

 

Obvious but not easy,

unappealing and so hard,

indeed, for sure, a daunting walk,

that’s the rub.

 

An unfaltering brisk pace,

that’s unlikely to happen:

difficult climbs and descents.

exhaust me.

 

What’s the point of the steep grade?

Going up is a tiring task!

Going down is a forced run!

Why, then why?

 

Climbed with effort and without respite,

these hills: make pilgrims worthy:

for they reveal buena vistas,

real realms realized.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
