463. Two Paths
 
By Julia Caroline Ripley Dorr
 
 
A PATH across a meadow fair and sweet,
Where clover-blooms the lithesome grasses greet,
A path worn smooth by his impetuous feet.
A straight, swift path—and at its end, star
Gleaming behind the lilac’s fragrant bar,        5
And her soft eyes, more luminous by far!
 
A path across the meadow fair and sweet,
Still sweet and fair where blooms and grasses meet—
A path worn smooth by his reluctant feet.
A long, straight path—and, at its end, a gate        10
Behind whose bars she doth in silence wait
To keep the tryst, if he come soon or late!
