"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.
