My heart and I know many things:
We know why singing birds have wings;

Why moths, enthralled by mad desire
Would rather die than shun the fire;

Why spirits bruised can make brave show,
While happiness must softly go;

Why music's mystic trinity
Holds peace, heartache and ecstacy;

Why Woman, since the world began
Feeds drop by drop, her heart to Man;

How daisies dance and grasses wave
Impartially above each grave;

Why bees must hive, fruit fill the pod;
How each soul fashions his own God.

My heart and I know many a thing,
Why tides must rise and poets sing.
