According to Joan Morris of the Contra Costa Times, the poem is called 'Nobody Knows It But Me' and was written by Patrick O'Leary, who works for the advertising agency that created the ad.
'There's a place that I travel/When I want to roam/And nobody knows it but me/The roads don't go there/And the signs stay home/And nobody knows it but me/It's far, far away/And way, way afar/It's over the moon and the sea/And wherever you're going/That's wherever you are/And nobody knows it but me.'
Here's a link to her column:
Pretty good stuff - if I had to guess I would have guessed Robert Frost. So I guess there's hope for all of us frustrated English majors stuck writing ad copy. :)
