The Road Goes Ever On

 Backpacking near Glen Aulin, Yosemite National Park. 

Backpacking near Glen Aulin, Yosemite National Park. 

 

Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.
Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star,
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
