First Line: The word of the sun to the sky
Last Line: Who knows all three?
Subject(s): Life; Nature; Secrets; Sun


THE word of the sun to the sky,
The word of the wind to the sea,
The word of the moon to the night,
What may it be?


The sense to the flower of the fly,
The sense of the bird to the tree,
The sense to the cloud of the light,
Who can tell me?


The song of the fields to the kye,
The song of the lime to the bee,
The song of the depth to the height,
Who knows all three?
