Wild Wind Willow

Who can know why the wild wind blows?

out of low grey clouds cold winter waters spray

who can say how the willow grows?

 

Who first lit the sun? Nobody knows

but we do know that the sky darkens at close of day

who can know why the wild wind blows?

 

Who caused the bulbs and plants to grow?

who buried the seeds, warming earth at break of day?

who can say how the willow grows?

 

Who watches over the cattle in their meadows?

or vixen with her cubs who scratch and play?

who can know why the wild wind blows?

 

Who plotted the flight of swans and crows?

hunting search or resting stay?

Who can say how the willow grows?

 

Who knows how long our earthly sojourn be?

who knows when the high clouds snows?

Who can know why the wild wind blows?

who can say how the willow grows?
