I WALKED A MILE

Some lines linger long ...
Steady,
Strong
In the soul.

I WALKED A MILE

I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow,
And ne’er a word said she;
But, oh! The things I learned from her,
When Sorrow walked with me.
