I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree
And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk

And then come back to it and begin over.
May no fate wilfully misunderstand me
And half grant what I wish and snatch me away
Not to return. Earth's the right place for love:
I don't know where it's likely to go better.
Robert Frost
