Sometimes when traveling a dusty road
The faces of tired wanderers are lighted
With hope and gladness -- not so far away
They see a city, their footsteps benighted
They hasten, thinking to have reached at last
Their long sought destination.
As nearer they approach they see no city --
It was but some weird vision conjured there
By homesick hearts that, wearied by long absence,
Put there to solace minds wracked by despair.
They plod so slowly on, and, looking back,
Again they see -- their home.
