  • Up-Hill

    Does the road wind up-hill all the way? Yes, to the very end.
    Will the day’s journey take the whole long day? From morn to night, my friend.
    But is there for the night a resting-place?
    A roof for when the slow dark hours begin.
    May not the darkness hide it from my face? You cannot miss that inn.
    Shall I meet other wayfarers at night? Those who have gone before.
    Then must I knock, or call when just in sight? They will not keep you standing at that door.
    Shall I find comfort, travel-sore and weak? Of labour you shall find the sum.
    Will there be beds for me and all who seek? Yea, beds for all who come.

    …No more A-roving

    So, we’ll go no more a roving So late into the night,
    Though the heart be still as loving, And the moon be still as bright.
    For the sword outwears its sheath, And the soul wears out the breast,
    And the heart must pause to breathe, And love itself have rest.
    Though the night was made for loving, And the day returns too soon,
    Yet we’ll go no more a roving By the light of the moon.


    “Hope” is the thing with feathers – That perches in the soul –
    And sings the tune without the words – And never stops – at all –
    And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard – And sore must be the storm –
    That could abash the little Bird
    That kept so many warm –
    I’ve heard it in the chillest land – And on the strangest Sea –
    Yet – never – in Extremity,
    It asked a crumb – of me.
