Take the long way, the long way home

I know that this is the title of a poem by Sylvia Townsend Warner which I heard on the radio. I would dearly love to read the poem again. Does anyone have it available? Many thanks

First Line: Go the long way, the long way home.

Last line: Ere the wind jolts you, and you vanish like foam.

by Sylvia Townsend Warner

Many thanks JohnnyBoy. I had no idea that a collected volume of her poems have recently been published. I shall pursue that. Thanks again.
