The Arrow And The Song

I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Absolutely adore this piece, Rani. Love the 'nod' to Jimi Hendrix too!
Hey, maybe it doesn't but on we go and some of us have the wind behind us. Great imagery. Ez.
That was tremendous Rani you could have sung it to me more than ten if I could Chris x
