As I was walking
                          I came upon
                        chance walking
                          the same road upon.

                        As I sat down
                          by chance to move
                        later
                          if and as I might,  

                        light the wood was,
                          light and green,
                        and what I saw
                          before I had not seen.  

                        It was a lady
                          accompanied
                        by goat men
                          leading her.  

                        Her hair held earth.
                          Her eyes were dark.
                        A double flute
                          made her move.  

                        "O love,
                          where are you
                        leading
                          me now?"  ##
