Poem: “I Walked A Mile With Pleasure”

I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow,
And ne’er a word said she;
But, oh! The things I learned from her,
When sorrow walked with me.

-Robert Browning Hamilton

    you should do a parody off this based off of your POTS diagnosis 🙂

    Are one of the symptoms of POTS irritability? Because I thought Mom was the vinegar 😉

    Ah, so that’s where Barry McGuire got those lyrics. There’s a song “I Walked A Mile” on the Barry McGuire/Second Chapter of Acts live album “To The Bride” (from 1975 – I guess that dates me), and that poem makes up the chorus of the song.
