Poetry of Kansas


OUT in the world as sadly I yearn
    For friends I've not seen a long while;
I know they will welcome me on my return,
    And welcome me back with a smile.
But those who are closer, who are my own,
    Those who are very dear,
They'll lovingly welcome me back home,
    And welcome me back with a tear.
