By the road I walk

By the road I walk

Image by Wallpaperscraft

there's a path nearby
the road I walk.

of the creek I hear the sound
    but 'have no sight.

it's a call that crawls
beneath the woods.
lurking wild, beastly
preying upon
    the road I walk.

there's a path nearby,
beside that creek.
I see no sight
I feel it deep.

beyond the trees it rests

    Oh, creek beyond the trees!
    Oh, path beneath the leaves!

I keep walking the road I walk.

but I'll always know
there's a path nearby

with no footsteps but fallen leaves
    by branches guided
    by roots sustained
    by a stream followed; just
    by the road I walk.
