Quest

 
(for clm)
 
I wandered
but a little
yonder

the heart
felt a little
fonder

and so I let
the spirit
squander
 
*
 
had I friends
they might
have said

surely you
are
much misled

these roads
all but lead to
Rome

you need to
find
you way home

 
*
 
the world
looks a little
older

the blood runs
a
little colder
 
*
 
but you know
well the human
breast

it is where
all hope
must rest

waiting ever
the
final test
 
*
 
so there
will be
wandering

and a lot
more of
squandering

before
the fulsome
journey’s done

and the race
is lost
or won
 
*
 
matters not
whether won
or lost

if prepared
to bear
the cost

and so I
must go
on and on

dreaming
Shangri-La
and Erewhon
