    Return of the Wanderer

    There's a time at night when the moon is full
    And the breakers pound the beach,
    The world is dark and asleep, the gull
    Lies nesting at the breach,
    It's then that the stirrings from the depths
    Reach out, like a dead man's hand,
    And shortly, out of the rivulets
    There are footprints on the sand.

    They come ashore and they stand awhile
    And they point, this way and that,
    Considering well which way to go
    As the waves erase their tracks,
    Then a breeze picks up and it parts the grass
    In a line up from the shore,
    And the shape of feet on a farmer's stile
    Are left, till they dry once more.

    While up on the rise, a cottage sits
    With a single faint night-light,
    Its simple beam like a beacon streams
    Through the tar-black pitch of night,
    While deep inside in a cosy room
    Sleeps a girl called Carolyn,
    Who tosses fretfully in the gloom
    As she dreams the words, ‘Come in! '

    The footsteps up from the field below
    Stand still at the old front door,
    The lock is rusty, the hinges swing
    For an inch, or maybe more,
    The wind is moaning and soughing now
    And the door is soon ajar,
    As the footsteps enter that sacred place
    Under the evening star.

    And Carolyn lies and moans aloud
    As his death invades her sleep,
    Since ever the depths had formed his shroud
    All she had done was weep,
    The footprints stood, facing her bed
    For an age it seemed, they kept
    A silent vigil, there by her head
    When she woke, the sheets were wet.
