“There once was a lass named Athena,
Who came from a farm near Galena…”

I wandered onto a strange path long ago,
Lost in more ways than one,
Faced with a life that terrified and confused.

I saw her watching, amused.
“Which way should I go?” I finally asked.
Then she did this, pointing in the most enchanting way.
In that instant, other things were no longer important,
And I knew which path we would travel instead.
