HOW FAR THE ROAD, by            
First Line: You have seen him and so have I
Last Line: If he is -- how far the road must wind.
Subject(s): Begging & Beggars


You have seen him and so have I --
Shuffling the streets or standing all day
Waiting the mood of the passer-by;
Listless, unseeing he twangs away
On a broken-stringed guitar --

An empty sleeve -- and again I see
Fields deep in mud and places far,
A buddy keeping step with me.

So I drop my dime in the old tin-cup
And always the soul of me lifts up.
What if he is not maimed or blind?
If he is -- how far the road must wind.
