    "Child on Forest Road" by Wynn Bullock

    Where’s the little one going
    Alone on the oak-forest road?
    What does the child here?

    Maybe she’s going to meet
    The woman coming from there

    She’s old, she’s old
    Her feet are bare
    Her hair uncombed,
    Far in the forest
    And sweet she whistles,
    “I’m coming, little one, little one,
    Coming on home”

    Her feet are bare
    Her hair uncombed,
    the child who stops and listens, listens
    All by herself on the oak-forest road
