The Winds of the World
Kirby pulled out to the roadside and let the regiment pass
WINDS OF THE WORLD
KING—OF THE KHYBER RIFLES, ETC.
JOSEPH CLEMENT COLL

Ever the Winds of the World fare forth
(Oh, listen ye! Ah, listen ye!),
East and West, and South and North,
Shuttles weaving back and forth
Amid the warp! (Oh, listen ye!)
Can sightless touch—can vision keen
Hunt where the Winds of the World have been
And searching, learn what rumors mean?
(Nay, ye who are wise! Nay, listen ye!)
When tracks are crossed and scent is stale,
'Tis fools who shout—the fast who fail!
But wise men harken-Listen ye!
