Poem by Arthur Hugh Clough
As, at a railway junction, men Who came together, taking then One the train up, one down, again Meet never! Ah, much more as they Who take one streetТs two sides, and say Hard parting words, but walk one way: Though moving other mates between, While carts and coaches intervene, Each to the other goes unseen; Yet seldom, surely, shall there lack Knowledge they walk not back to back, But with an unity of track, Where common dangers each attend, And common hopes their guidance lend To light them to the self-same end. Whether he then shall cross to thee, Or thou go thither, or it be Some midway point, ye yet shall see Each other, yet again shall meet. Ah, joy! when with the closing street; Forgivingly at last ye greet!
