Excerpt from A Poet's Pilgrimage

When dogs play in the sun outdoors,
And cats chase sunbeams on the mat;
When merry maidens laugh for joy,
And young men cock their ears at that;
And babes can see in panes of glass
A better light than firegrate has;

When to my teeth ale is not cold,
And sweeter than hot toast is bread;
When I, no longer charmed

Overview

Excerpt from A Poet's Pilgrimage

When dogs play in the sun outdoors,
And cats chase sunbeams on the mat;
When merry maidens laugh for joy,
And young men cock their ears at that;
And babes can see in panes of glass
A better light than firegrate has;

When to my teeth ale is not cold,
And sweeter than hot toast is bread;
When I, no longer charmed by books,
Seek human faces in their stead;
And every stranger that I meet
Will seem a friend whom I must greet;

When I no sooner up at morn,
Must like a turkey bolt my food.
To tramp the white green-bordered roads,
And hear birds sing in many a wood:
When such a time of year has come.
The whole wide world can be my home.

Some time ago, in the month of May, I went by train from London to Carmarthen, with the intention of walking through South Wales, after which I would extend my travels into England.
