(Note To the Wanderlust clan
under the "Lure of Somewhere
Out of the land of weel and of woe,
A voice is forever calling: "Go! Go
To the 'Land of Somewhere Else,' make hasto-;
Time is too precious to idle and waste."
And again the mystic somethings say:
.."Why joiter around here another day?
Awake, my friend, and rnove on and o i
Before this wonderful life is all gone."
Wherever I am I do not care.
Just so it's someviere else, but I dare
Not linger at rest too long,
Lest Life should forget to sing me her song.
There's always a "somewhere else" beyond.
Somewhere there is something new to be found.
So aimlessly and on I wander,
Yielding to a phantom vision yonder,
Routine makes life seem so much longer,
The very soul cries out with hunger
For diversion. Ah! Too vast a space
Bktwecn my joys and the dull resting place.
No use to wait; it's calling again:
"Move on," and I ask it where and when.
I "It matters not, but be gone, rejoice,"
So I shall go now as I have no choice.
When Wisdom takes his time-honored seat,
I may, in my home, find a sweet retreat
When Youth's enthusiasm is cold
And the "Lure of Somewhere Else" has grown old.
When I have spent the best of life.
Mingling my tears with joys and with strife,
Take me into thy arms, Oh Rest!
Say: "Be content you have known the best."
