Sine Waves 600x318

The Trail of the Wood Walkers

I have walked many trails

I have ascended many poles

I reach a hand to help


I was sent to serve

I was sent to provide

I was sent to make a difference


Watching the lights come on on a cold winters’ night

Watching the smiles as my truck drives up a lowly driveway

Seeing people who realize what I am and what I bring to the table


I bring a tradition

I bring a history

I bring a world of men long since past


I am a lineman

Today we shall bring trucks

We shall bring equipment

We shall bring heat

We shall bring air conditioning

We shall bring lights


From the top of every pole


For all is as it should be.


Thomas H Palmer II
