Hesse’s Inspiration for those of us who wander

Hermann Hesse, reading

Hermann Hesse, reading

If we accept a home of our making,
Familiar habit makes for indolence.
We must prepare for parting and leave-taking
Or else remain the slaves of permanence.
— Hermann Hesse

There are some of us who wonder if we’ll ever stop moving.

There are those of us who wonder why there’s never been a home.

We’ve chosen the harder path, listless souls doomed to roam.
