Thought Of The Week

I Go By Ways of Rust and Flame

By: Byron Herbert Reece


I go by ways of rust and flame

Beneath the bent and lonely sky

Behind me on the ways I came

I see the hedges lying bare

But neither question nor reply


A solitary thing am I

Upon the roads of rust and flame

That thin at sunset to the air

I call upon no word nor name

And neither question nor reply

But walk alone as all men must

Upon the roads of flame and rust
