The Tongue Of The Learned


When I quarrel my voice reaches to the South,
Lord, put a cello tape on my mouth,

Like a little child teach me anew,
Teach me words I never knew,
Your Word I want to treasure,
So that in my words You will find pleasure

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
