95,232. You did not walk with me
Of late to the hill-top tree
By the gated ways,
As in earlier days;
You were weak and lame,
So you never came,
And I went alone, and I did not mind,
Not thinking of you as left behind.
I walked up there today
Just in the former way;
The familiar ground
By myself again:
What difference then?
Only that underlying sense
Of the look of a room on returning thence. (Walk & Alone) Thomas Hardy, The Walk
