Later Poems

by Bliss Carman


A Wood-path


At evening and at morning
By an enchanted way
I walk the world in wonder,
And have no word to say.

It is the path we traversed

One twilight, thou and I;
Thy beauty all a rapture,
My spirit all a cry.

The red leaves fall upon it,
The moon and mist and rain,

But not the magic footfall
That made its meaning plain.
