Stedman and Hutchinson, comps.  A Library of American Literature:
An Anthology in Eleven Volumes.  1891.
Vols. VI–VIII: Literature of the Republic, Part III., 1835–1860
 
The Way
By William Steele Shurtleff (1830–1896)
 
[Born in Newbury Springs, Vt., 1830. Died in Longmeadow, Mass., 1896.]

FIRST, find out Truth, and then,
    Although she strays
From beaten paths of men,
    To untrod ways,
Her leading follow straight,        5
    And bide thy fate!
 
And whether smiles or scorn
    Thy passing greet,
Or find’st thou flower or thorn
    Beneath thy feet,        10
Fare on! nor fear thy fate
    At Heaven’s gate.
