Home Song

Stay, stay at home, my heart at rest;
Home-keeping hearts are at happiest;
For those that wonder they not where
Are full trouble and full of care; To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest
The birds in its nest;
O'er all flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering the sky;
To stay at is best.

Henry Wadsworth longfellow
