The Road to Avrillé
by Edna St. Vincent Millay
April again in Avrillé,
And the brown lark in air.
And you and I a world apart,
That walked together there.
The cuckoo spoke from out of the wood,
The lark from out the sky.
Embraced upon the highway stood
Love-sick you and I.
The rosy peasant left his bees,
The carrier slowed his cart,
To shout us blithe obscenities,
And bless us from the heart,
Songs to Poems of Edna St. Vincent Millay
