There was a child who tried to run
Trough all the fields and fields of spring
For always the next creek in the sun
Might be the one for following.
He ran by leafless willow-trees
And only wanted one bird note,
One wild, wild shout of birds to ease
The pent-up shouting in his throat.

He came upon an old haystack,
Its yellow soaked away in rain
And there he lay upon his back
And wondered if he could explain
Why what he found he did not seek,
And what he sought he could not say,
And why the sun on every creek
Was always half a field away.
