The Merry Guide Analysis

Once in the wind of morning

      I ranged the thymy wold;

The world-wide air was azure

      And all the brooks ran gold.



There through the dews beside me

      Behold a youth that trod,

With feathered cap on forehead,

      And poised a golden rod.



With mien to match the morning

      And gay delightful guise

And friendly brows and laughter

      He looked me in the eyes.



Oh whence, I asked, and whither?

      He smiled and would not say,

And looked at me and beckoned

      And laughed and led the way.



And with kind looks and laughter

      And nought to say beside

We two went on together,

      I and my happy guide.



Across the glittering pastures

      And empty upland still

And solitude of shepherds

      High in the folded hill,



By hanging woods and hamlets

      That gaze through orchards down

On many a windmill turning

      And far-discovered town,



With gay regards of promise

      And sure unslackened stride

And smiles and nothing spoken

      Led on my merry guide.



By blowing realms of woodland

      With sunstruck vanes afield

And cloud-led shadows sailing

      About the windy weald,



By valley-guarded granges

      And silver waters wide,

Content at heart I followed

      With my delightful guide.



And like the cloudy shadows

      Across the country blown

We two fare on for ever,

      But not we two alone.



With the great gale we journey

      That breathes from gardens thinned,

Borne in the drift of blossoms

      Whose petals throng the wind;



Buoyed on the heaven-heard whisper

      Of dancing leaflets whirled

>From all the woods that autumn

      Bereaves in all the world.



And midst the fluttering legion

      Of all that ever died

I follow, and before us

      Goes the delightful guide,



With lips that brim with laughter

      But never once respond,

And feet that fly on feathers,

      And serpent-circled wand.
