                      PATH

Between my work and me there lie
A patch of earth, a patch of sky.

The patch of earth is mostly hill,
With maples standing bare and chill,
But in the sheltered hollow
The goldenrod and daisies grow,
And overhead the wild geese go
Where I can never follow.

Now God be thanked for earth and sky
And time to watch as I go by.
