WISHES

  • O GIVE me the ears of a fairy
  • To hear the trees growing,
  • The greeting of ants and of earwigs;
  • To hearken the lowing
  • Of tiny green cattle in grass woods
  • Where wee winds are blowing.
  • O give me ears of a giant
  • To hear the sun thunder
  • Along space, to list the moon coming,
  • The earth swinging under:
  • Ah! we hear not and see not, but thinking
  • Fills life up with wonder!
