NEW ROAD

Stone by stone, leaf by leaf,
I must learn this way of grief
Lest a path I yet may choose
Should lead me back in thinner shoes,
Through tangled brier and twisted bough,
To walk the road that I walk now.

Leaf by leaf, stone by stone,
Till each inch of this is known!
I may spare my body pain
When I pass this way again.
