THE OLD STRAIGHT TRACK

THE OLD STRAIGHT TRACK

Runs to no compass point

But starts within the human heart

Where travellers in twos may go

As for a while it winds beside

A man-made road then veers aside

We met at a cross-roads once and journeyed

Together for a while across a moor

And then on horseback sadly you waved adieu.
