“Alone” is the company that will not wallow

    I thought the first two stanzas got this poem off to an intriguing start. The idea of 'Alone' struck me as similar to the concept of being at one with the way of things, with nature. The fact that this poem turned into a love poem weakened it in my eyes, though it is still effective and has some great imagery. (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
