Q. --

TELL me, Mother Nature, tell, --
What of heaven and what of hell?
Who doth ill and who doth well?
Tell me, Mother Nature.

A. --

Well is done where firmlier life
Cometh forth from any strife;
Where life-happiness is rife: --
Love to live, my creature.

Q. --

What of love? With what intent
Is my life with loving blent, --
Sacrifice and sacrament?
Tell me, Mother Nature.

A. --

Loveless life is null and vain;
Love alone is worthy gain,
Love alone is worthy pain; --
Live to love, my creature.
