Excerpt from The Youthful Pilgrim: An Allegory
N ow I saw that at the end Of the path in which the Child was travel ling lay Death and Destruction, and for those who had Once fallen into their power, there seemed to be no hope Of return.
The Child, though young, had joined in the giddy chase after Folly and Pleasure, who with smil ing faces still stood, beckoning her to follow them. But her feet were sore and bleeding from travelling over the rough and thorny way through which they had already led her, and weary and sad she had seated herself almost in despair, not knowing whither to go. By reason of a film which was over her eyes.
