"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 a 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".
