Default Corrupt a Poem

In order to celebrate the successful resuscitation of the Lawn, let's bring back that one game whose name I don't remember, but it's very simple. You change one word of the poem and repost.

I choose Robert Frost as victim - not because I don't like him.

I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain - and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.

I have looked down the saddest city lane.
I have passed by the watchman on his beat
And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.

I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet
When far away an interrupted cry
Came over houses from another street,

But not to call me back or say good-bye;
And further still at an unearthly height,
One luminary clock against the sky

Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.
I have been one acquainted with the night.

But not to call me back or say good-bye;
And further still at an unearthly height,

I think that's the point of changing just one word.
