    A Poem In Memory of William C. Madison
    Titled, 'Reluctance'

    Out through the fields and the woods,
    And over the walls I have wended;
    I have climbed the hills of view,
    And looked at the world and descended;
    I have come by the highway home,
    And lo, it is ended.
    ~Robert Frost~
