Poem by Robert Louis Stevenson


Songs of Travel and Other Verses. 40. And End to Travel


LET now your soul in this substantial world
Some anchor strike. Be here the body moored; -
This spectacle immutably from now
The picture in your eye; and when time strikes,
And the green scene goes on the instant blind -
The ultimate helpers, where your horse to-day
Conveyed you dreaming, bear your body dead.

                 Vailima
