Holy Tornado

To see the soul of your comrade listen carefully to his music.

On the shores of the Adriatic, the wives of the fishermen whose husbands have gone far out upon the deep, are in the habit, at eventide, of going down to the seashore and singing, as female voices only can, the first stanza of a beautiful hymn.

After they have sung it, they listen till they hear, borne in the winds across the desert sea, the second stanza, sung by their gallant husbands as they are tossed by the gale upon the waves.

Perhaps, if we could listen, we too might hear on this desert world of ours some sound, some whisper, borne from afar, to remind us that there is a heaven and a home.
