TELL ME WHY 
 
  the branches grow here

  and the seeds fall to the earth and 

  the wind blows across the land 

  and the rain just falls everywhere 

  and makes the seeds 

  grow 
 
 

  so tell me why the branches grow 

  and why the seeds fall

  so tell me why the wind blows across the land

  and why the rain falls everywhere 

  and why the seeds grow 
 
 

  ha I say 

  I, foolish one, knave, a knome in the kings land

  ha I say to the riddles my mind makes for me 

  to the why's without what for's 

  ha I say 

  this night of wind and moonlight
