Welcome home, weary traveler
Lay down the heavy trappings,
Wash off the weariness.
For you have given too much;
Entrenched in the lives of strangers
Trying to ease their drudgery
With your benevolence.
Ensconce in the warmth of your abode,
Take comfort from the cocoon of sleep,
Rejuvenate as you breathe the first crisp air of autumn.
