I know not but in every leaf
That sprang to life along with me
Were written all the joy and grief
Thenceforth my fate to be.

The wind that whispered to the earth,
The bird that sang its earliest lay,
The flower that blossomed at my birth --
My kinsmen all were they.

Aye, but for fellowship with these
I had not been -- nay, might not be;
Nor they but vagrant melodies
Till harmonized to me.
