Many paths lay

“Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.” – Robert Frost

Many paths lay 
swerving towards the horizon 
Yet sir what of leaving 
The Way? 

The rushes shush 
And the catkins shyly nod 
No lane weaves through 
No clearing announces 
Its presence 

And yet it beckons 
An Oasis that 
Asks through the 
Whispering wind 
Its existence 
To be found.

    Frost is one of my favourites. This is lovely. I hope it is not too bad that I do not think I understand what the poem is about and like it. I do so like a bit of mystery.

  2. Love the catkins reference.

    And the last stanza is just great.
