  • Edna St. Vincent Millay

    It's little I care what path I take,

  • And where it leads it's little I care,

  • But out of this house, lest my heart break,

  • I must go, and off somewhere!

    It's little I know what's in my heart,

  • What's in my mind it's little I know,

  • But there's that in me must up and start,

  • And it's little I care where my feet go!

    I wish I could walk for a day and a night,

  • And find me at dawn in a desolate place,

  • With never the rut of a road in sight,

  • Or the roof of a house, or the eyes of a face.

    I wish I could walk till my blood should spout,

  • And drop me, never to stir again,

  • On a shore that is wide, for the tide is out,

  • And the weedy rocks are bare to the rain.
