“Song of the Wanderer"

Across the gently rolling hills,
Beyond high mountain peaks,
Along the shores of distant seas,
There's something my heart seeks.

My heart seeks the hearth,
My feet seek the road.
A soul so divided
Is a terrible load.

My heart longs to rest,
My feet yearn to roam.
Shall I wander the world
Or stay safe at home?

But there's no peace in wandering,
The road's not made for rest.
And footsore fools will never know
What home might suit them best.


But, oh, the things I have seen,
The secret paths I've trod,
The hidden corners of the world
Known to none but me and God.


Yes, the world was meant for knowing,
And feet were meant to roam,
But one who's always going
Will never find a home.


Oh, where's the thread that binds me,
The voice that calls me back?
Where's the love that finds me-
And what's the root I lack?”

Bruce Coville, Song of the Wanderer
