On Isabel's Children leaving for Abroad
Whispering winds what do you tell
Where are the children gone?
To lands across the seas they go
far, far away and left us all alone.
We wish them great adventures
and many tales to tell
we wish them kindness on their way
and safety where they dwell.
Someday we hope they will return
to stay a while again
we'll be the roots they sprang from
the rest from wind and rain
when all their dragons have been slain
we'll wait for them no more in vain.
Isabel, they will be back again soon though not unchanged.
