  • To see a child is rare there, and the eye

    Has but the road, the wood that overhangs

    And underyawns it, and the path that looks

    As if it led on to some legendary

    Or fancied place where men have wished to go

    And stay; till, sudden, it ends where the wood ends.

    —Edward Thomas, 'The Path'
