THITHER, as I look, I see each result and glory retracing itself and nestling close,
always
obligated;
Thither hours, months, years-thither trades, compacts, establishments, even the most
minute;

Thither every-day life, speech, utensils, politics, persons, estates;
Thither we also, I with my leaves and songs, trustful, admirant,
As a father, to his father going, takes his children along with him. 5
