What hope shall we gather, what dreams shall we sow?
Where the wind calls our wandering footsteps we go.
No love bids us tarry, no joy bids us wait:
The voice of the wind is the voice of our fate.
The wandering singers do not hope or plan for the future like others. Most human beings live their life in pursuit of something. We expect things to happen according to our will and get fed up if they do not go by our plans. We also believe that it is the hopes of the future that makes us move on in life. If one does not have hope in life, we believe that we might lose faith in life. But the wandering singers do not go by this philosophy. They believe that no one can predict the next moment in life and therefore take life as it comes. They do not gather any hope as that might create expectations. They do not sow dreams as well. They do not have great dreams as they live life as it comes.

They focus on the journey
They do not have a fixed destiny nor do they know where they are going. They focus on the journey and not the destination. They wander around wherever they feel nature takes them. Their feet tread on places the wind calls them to. There is nothing that can make them stay in a place. There is nobody waiting for them. There is no love or happiness that can be offered to them to make them move. Their destiny changes according to the direction of the winds. They are not aimless people, but aim to live life one thing at a time, rather than having high expectations or judging anything.
The voice of the wind is the voice of their fate!
