I TRAVELED the road of the restless
With the siren wind for my guide,
Seeking the priest of the happy
And by his great counsel to bide.

Somewhere I must certainly find him,
(For the world will reveal all things),
So I followed the road's white windings —
And I went with the ship's white wings.

In the purple gardens of kingdoms,
Through the violet nights of the East,
My soul and the sad stars, searching,
Sought in vain for the precious priest.

But I came with the diamond sunrise
To the land that my heart loves best,
And here at my father's doorstep
I garnered the fruit of my quest.

He greeted me first in the pathway
That leads up from the homesick sea,
He smiled as he gently led me
To the innocent heart of thee.

And not until then did I know him,
(So blind were my eyes by the sun),
For the precious priest of the happy
And the God of love were one.
