With song in my lips and joy in my heart,
I shall march ahead on foot or on a cart.
I don’t know the path, I can't see my goal,
I cannot be contained in a small rabbit hole.

I shall not stop; I will wander and roam,
My world lies outside and not in my home.
My legs will not stop and I cannot take rest
I want to keep searching to find out the best.

One life is too short to see the whole world,
but we always have time to sing with a bird.
My travels will not cease, I will never rust,
will walk even to my death, I am wanderlust

Wanderlust...Reminds me,
Reminds of someone who said " I expect to pass through this world but once,
any good therefore that i can do or any kindness that i can show to any fellow creature,
let me do it now for i shall not pass this way again."

Reminds me,
Reminds of the elven daughter, wearing a flowing white gown, wandering in a meadow,
smile in her voice, luster in her presence, taking a glass bowl here and there,
I ask her, "What are you doing fair maiden ?"
She says, "trying to capture the ray of light that comes filtering through the branches"
She continues,"No matter how big the darkness, it can never extinguish a candle"

Bravo to Appudu, Wanderlust is a presence, presence in a fragrance of mind.
