Leaving Acorn Abbey

This true people took the stranger
And warm hearted housed the ranger
They received their roving guest
And have fed him with the best.

-doggerel, though fitting doggerel, that Thoreau wrote upon leaving the Emerson household, where he lived and worked as their handyman/ groundskeeper.
