THE WET WOODS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: This path leads to the laurel
Last Line: I will be alone with sorrow.
Subject(s): Solitude; Loneliness

This path lads to the laurel,
And that, winds to the burn:
Hemlocks, pines, and birches,
Know the one that I turn.

It is wet in the woods to-day,—
And perhaps, the sun to-morrow,
Shall weave its gold, while away
I will be alone with sorrow.
