The Song of Amazement

Come rain or shine
wild flowers remain graceful
and the Moon knows light and shade
can get along just fine.

In a world of dreams
you can go as you please
for the Flame does not flicker
in the breeze.

The birth of a rose,
the life of a bird,
nothing lasts for long
but Love is more patient than I,

and so I sing
the Song of the Dawn Sky
the Song of the Evening Star
the Song of Amazement!
