First Line: I travel! My pilgrimage hither-ward lies
Last Line: My forehead to god, my feet in the dust.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Pilgrimages & Pilgrims


I travel! My pilgrimage hither-ward lies
Beyond these proud barriers neath fairer skies,
Away from these purlieus that throttle the soul
On, on to the bounds of my utter-most goal.
No power that moves in the land or the sea
Can curtail or capture the vision in me,
I follow a lode-star, I can, and I must!
My forehead to God, my feet in the dust.
