Poem by Stephen Crane


* * *


A learned man came to me once.
He said, ФI know the way, -- come.Ф
And I was overjoyed at this.
Together we hastened.
Soon, too soon, were we
Where my eyes were useless,
And I knew not the ways of my feet.
I clung to the hand of my friend;
But at last he cried, ФI am lost.Ф
