One Step Backward Taken


Not only sands and gravels




Were once more on their travels,




But gulping muddy gallons




Great boulders off their balance




Bumped heads together dully




And started down the gully.




Whole capes caked off in slices.




I felt my standpoint shaken




In the universal crisis.




But with one step backward taken




I saved myself from going.




A world torn loose went by me.




Then the rain stopped and the blowing,




And the sun came out to dry me.
-Robert Frost
