SO warm the lighted windows glow
Across the darkness and the snow --
The trodden road, the sodden road,
The road wherein I chose to go.

THE winter skies are steely gray --
The winter stars are far away.
Light were my feet when winds were sweet,
But bitter going's mine to-day.

YET as I trudge, I needs must sing,
For be he vagabond or king,
A man must choose what he will lose --
And I have known the road in spring.
