The Wayfarer

The wayfarer

Perceiving the pathway to truth,

Was struck with astonishment.

It was thickly grown with weeds.

“Ha,” he said,

“I see that none has passed here

In a long time.”

Later he saw that each weed

Was a singular knife.

“Well,” he said at last,

“Doubtless there are other roads.”

—Stephen Crane
