“At the End of the Untraveled Road” by Franz Wright

 

Under Konocti

the long eucalyptus lined

road in the moon,

wind of November,

the now hawkless

hills

turning green—

it was always here, not yet remembered.

 

Whatever it is

 

I was seeking, with my useless despair:

it was always here.

And I’m on my way now,

the pages too heavy to turn,

the first morning lights coming on

over the lake. How happy I am!

There’s no hope for me.
