Ode - by English poet Arthur O'Shaughnessy In His work titled "Music and Moonlight"
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams
World-losers and world-forsakers
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world for ever, it seems.
For those of us who travel, the desire for adventure - first hand knowledge of a different people, place and culture - is as necessary and natural as breathing. We get restless with routine, and we anxiously await every opportunity to release the bonds on our curiosity and take to the road or to the sky. It is when we are exploring, that we feel most alive.
