The Heart on the Highroad
By J. K. Wetherill
AWAY from light and shelter, warmth and peace,
How many and many a night of wind and rain
My anxious heart its wanderings could not cease,
Leading you home amid the tempest’s strain.
Long, long you have been safe from stormy skies,        5
Long, long in shelter from the winter’s chill;
But still the night wind shakes me with its cries,
And on my heart the icy rain falls still.
