Up-Hill

[adv., adj. uhp-hil; n. uhp-hil]
Up-Hill is the title of one of the poems by Christina Rossetti. The work is presented below:

Does the road wind up-hill all the way?

Yes, to the very end.
Will the day's journey take the whole long day?
From morn to night, my friend.

But is there for the night a resting place?

A roof for when the slow dark hours begin.
May not the darkness hide it from my face?
You cannot miss that inn.

Shall I meet other wayfarers at night?

Those who have gone before.
Then must I knock, or call when just in sight?
They will not keep you standing at that door.

Shall I find comfort, travel-sore and weak?

Of labour you shall find the sum.
Will there be beds for me and all who seek?
Yea, beds for all who come.
