All the Places We Used to Go

I chanced a visit today
To the neighborhood where I grew up
To the places we used to go
To learn
To explore
To just be

There were gates in front of the forest
And the trees were alone
They had been forgotten
In name
In touch
In spirit

Now I wonder
Where will we go
When the last of our vestiges
Have been claimed
By the onward march
Of progress?
