"And straight was a path of gold for him..."
Parting at Morning
Round the cape of a sudden came the sea,
And the sun looked over the mountain's rim:
And straight was a path of gold for him,
And the need of a world of men for me.
(Robert Browning 1812-1883)
I have been in love with Browning's "Meeting at Night" and "Parting at Morning" since I was a teenager.
