“A Worn Path” by Eudora Welty

the well worn path poem

It was my memory had left me. Lifting her skirt, leveling her cane fiercely before her like a festival figure in some parade, she began to march across. She makes these trips just as regular as clockwork. It was my memory fail me. And as we walk I think of all the moments that we shared. Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life and wait there patiently, until the song that is your life falls into your own cupped hands and you recognize and greet it.
