He stamped the ground with soles of muddied leather,
then left the woods by an ascending path
into the naked lanes of westward weather,

and words that spat, "I'm never coming back!"

and not a cozy cottage by the sea?

He trudged his path, looked back--the lines were blurred
between his mad descent, and love interred.
