I  LONGED for love, and eager to discover
 Its hiding-place, I wandered far and wide;
And as forlorn I sought the lone world over,
 Unrecognized, love journeyed at my side.

I craved for peace, and priceless years expended
 In unrewarded search from shore to shore;
But home returned, the weary seeking ended,
 Peace welcomed me where dwelt my peace of yore!
