Bicycle Poetry
POSTED: 7/23/09 9:39 AM

I came across once again this poem written by Senator Eugene McCarthy to his daughter Mary when she was six. She was one of my professors in law school. Here goes:

Bicylcle Rider

Teeth bare to the wind
Knuckle-white grip on the handlebars
You push the pedals of no return,
Let loose new motion and speed.
The earth turns with the multiplied
Force of your wheels.
Do not look back.
Feet light on the brake
Ride the bicycle of your will
Down the spine of the world,
Ahead of your time, into life
I will not say Go Slow.

US Senator Eugene McCarthy (1916-2005).
