    When the blazing sun hangs low in the western sky
    When the wind dies away on the mountain
    When the song of the meadowlark turns still
    When the free locust clicks no more in the field
    and the sea-foam sleeps like a maiden at rest
    and twilight touches the shape of the wandering Earth
    I turn home

    Through blue shadows and purple woods
    I turn home
    I turn to the place where I was born
    to the mother who bore me and the father who taught me
    long ago
    long ago

    Alone am I now
    lost in a far wide wandering world
    Still when the sun hangs low
    and the wind dies away
    and the sea-foam sleeps
    and twilight touches the wandering Earth
    I turn home
