seeking edVenturers

The wind whispers, seeking edventurers
Brushing you as it softly calls your name
To sing and dance the song of voyagers

Relentless, looking for discoverers
To share the arduous journey, and fame
The wind whispers, seeking edventurers

Calling intrepid daring explorers
Venture forth mindful of the coming rain
To sing and dance the song of voyagers

Travel the current to distant cultures
Traversing oceans and foreign terrain
The wind whispers, seeking edventurers

Step forward youthful stalwart challengers
Contest yourself and victory claim
To sing and dance the song of voyagers

The wind seeks those with brave voice, the leaders
Who simply go when others balk disdain
The wind whispers, seeking edventurers
To sing and dance the song of voyagers
