Spring and Light

There is a man of spring and light,
and he never knows the reasons why,
but he is one who knows the night
and raises trees to speak to sky.

He never knows the reasons why,
but planting seeds, he knows they’ll grow.
And raising trees to speak to sky,
Springlight Man knows what he has to know.

Planting seeds, he knows they’ll grow
and that the rains will come again.
Springlight Man knows what he has to know,
not asking why like other men.

He knows the rains will come again
and that the swallows sing at dawn,
and, not asking why like other men,
he accepts it when their song is gone.

He knows the swallow sings at the dawn,
and he is one who knows the night.
He accepts it when his song is gone.
He is a man of spring and light.
