Inscription

Stranger, think long before you enter,
For these corridors amuse not passing travellers.
But if you enter, keep your voice to yourself.
Nor should you tinkle and toll your tongue.
These columns rose not, for such as you.
But for those urgent pilgrim feet that wander
on lonely ways, seeking the roots of rootless trees.

The earth has many flowery roads; choose one
That pleases your whim, and gods be with you.
But now leave!-leave me to my dark green solitude
Which like the deep dream world of the sea
Has its moving shapes; coral; ancient coins;
Carved urns and ruins of ancient ships and gods:
And mermaids, with flowering golden hair
That charm a patch of silent darkness
Into singing sunlight.

misty road

    I will go in a misty road,
    in a foggy day,
    under the rain,
    in a path full of leaves.
    I don’t know where,
    with only my backpack,
    I will go, go, go,
    so, one day,
    I will rise, rise, rise,
    like a black ocean,
    welling and swelling,
    in a day break,
    beset with mist,
    under the rain,…

Two roads diverged in the wood,
and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the differences.
