nothing’s seen ‘til passed
it is so hard to know which road
is the best to take
so, we’ll try all roads within our
limit, even if
it will only serve to attest
the road not taken
was the one we shouldn’t have missed.

Ian probably wrote these last two poems in his early twenties. He was a genius. There are more poems of his to come. Next week: Richard Harrison.
