Some people are a ship, and some a hearth;
Some are wind, and some are summer sun;
Some are many, some are only one;
Some seek the whole while others seek the part.

But those who travel also stay at home,
While those at home are also much abroad,
For all of life must be an open road
That leads us to the place from whence we roam.

There is no difference what we do or are
That makes a difference to the naked soul
That stands before the mirror of the whole
While sailing, sailing bright beyond the bar.
