she looked up the path
her lover would take
as far as her eyes could see.
On the roads,
at the end of day
as night slid over the sky.
The travellers pained wife
took a single step towards home,
said, Could he not have come at this instant?
and quickly craning her neck around,
looked up the path again.”

To the hot passion of distempered blood
Than to make up a free determination
Twixt right and wrong; for pleasure and revenge
Have ears more deaf than adders to the voice
Of any true decision.”

“Our frigate takes fire,
The other asks if we demand quarter?
If our colors are struck and the fighting done?
Now I laugh content for I hear the voice of my little captain,
We have not struck, he composedly cries, we have just begun our part of the fighting.”
—Walt Whitman (18191892)
