A Settler and a Wanderer Sit Down to Have a Chat

Written by: Edward McCormick

To wander life, an aimless fellow Under sunlight, bright and yellow, Walking roads and rough terrain May seem to settlers quite insane. To have a home and plot of land, A friendly neighbors helping hand, And happy tales of family lore The wanderer would find a bore. A settler and a wanderer sit down to have a chat, Each asking of the other guy, "How could you live like that?" The settler prays the wanderer will someday realize, Yet over the horizon, the wanderers heart lies.
