Wherein Obscurely

 On the road with billowing poplars,
In a country flat and desolate
To the far-off gray horizon, wherein obscurely,
A man and a woman went on foot,

Each carrying a small suitcase.
They were tired and had taken off Their shoes and were walking on Their toes, staring straight ahead.
Every time a car passed fast, As they're wont to on such a stretch of Road, empty as the crow flies, How quickly they were gone-- The cars, I mean, and then the drizzle That brought on the early evening, Little by little, and hardly a light Anywhere, and then not even that.
