Hope the Hermit
An old man and I entered a village inn to take a simple luncheon,
After lunch we stood in a hamlet lane, by a mossy well, talking,
He had strolled for fifteen or twenty miles, a hard walk,
And would then leap over a stile with the activity of a boy,
The white haired man would then run up to a wilding bush,
Covered in beautiful pink blossoms he broke off a branch,
