The World's Wanderers
I Tell me, thou star, whose wings of light Speed thee in thy fiery flight, In what cavern of the night Will thy pinions close now? II Tell me, moon, thou pale and grey Pilgrim of heaven’s homeless way, In what depth of night or day Seekest thou repose now? III Weary wind, who wanderest Like the world’s rejected guest, Hast thou still some secret nest On the tree or billow?
