A Plain Public (Wiki) Road
American Literature and Composition
Br. Tom and Sophomores at
Carmel Catholic High School
Br. Tom is trying something other than teaching English.
He is no longer teaching at his beloved Carmel Catholic High.
I tramp a perpetual journey,
My signs are a rain-proof coat and good shoes and a staff cut from the woods;
No friend of mine takes his ease in my chair,
I have no chair, nor church nor philosophy;
I lead no man to a dinner-table or library or exchange,
But each man and each woman of you I lead upon a knoll,
My left hand hooks you round the waist,
My right hand points to landscapes of continents, and a plain public road.
Not I, not any one else can travel that road for you,
You must travel it for yourself.
Leaves of Grass
Song of Myself
They will say that you are on the wrong road, if it is your own.
