Where shall I go?

Who will love a lonely traveler

Who traveled far & seeks some rest

I will, said the old tree

My leaves shall shade you from the sun

So you can sleep

And all your darkest secrets

For you I shall keep


Who will take pity in his heart

And who will feed a starving traveler

I will, said the serene lake

For in my unfathomable waters

I have plenty of fish

So eat & drink my friend

As much as you wish


Who will love a lonely traveler

And who will remember his name

I will, said the earth

For all I created returns on to me

From dust were you made

And dust you shall be.
