‘Through the Woods’

"THEY shut the road through the woods 
Seventy years ago. 
Weather and rain have undone it again, 
And now you would never know 
There was once a path through the woods 
Before they planted the trees: 
It is underneath the coppice and heath, 
And the thin anemones. 
Only the keeper sees 
That, where the ring-dove broods 
And the badgers roll at ease, 
There was once a road through the woods. (...)"

                - Rudyard Kipling, from 'The Way through the Woods'
