WHAT IS TRAVELLING FOR ME?
What is traveling for me?
It is the shining sun, the sea;
The golden sand which looks like beads;
The blue-eyed sky and tender breeze,
What do I see when I close my eyes?
A milk-white ship with two red strips;
The limpid clouds at the dawn
And sun, that rises all alone …
And when the twilight falls from height,
The night appears from heaven’s gate.
I see the moon in magic light
And stars, that sparkle at the night.
That’s what I’m looking for in dreams,
And they are my inspiring beams,
I want to see it, to behold
And travel all over the world.
