First Line: My road lies open, over level country

Subject(s): Roads; Paths; Trails


My road lies open, over level country,
Bare as the sea.
No sudden turn, no unexpected winding,
No mystery.

I dreamed of rugged paths to splendid summits,
Where far-flung views
Should lift my soul to heaven, and recompense me
For ache and bruise.

No heights, no dangers here, no high adventure --
I only see
The need of greater courage still for facing
Monotony.
