COLLECTED POEMS


 

Journey’s End



I reach the Inn and drop my load,
    And, dazzled by the sunset flame,
I look through windows down the road
    Up which I came.

I see far off as in a dream

5

    My starting-place at dawn of day,
And trace the woods and mountain stream
    That edged my way.

And now upon the mountain height
     gaze with rapture at the view,

10
Until the stars call down the night
    And bid me bid the world adieu. [Page 73]
