The Answer (Poem by Frank Oliver Call)

Daily Classic Poem

The Answer
By Frank Oliver Call


Why do I lie upon the ground
And listen to the silver sound
Of water flowing from a spring?
It sings a song I cannot sing.

Why am I gazing at the sky
To watch the clouds go trailing by?
— Pearl ships upon a sapphire sea — 
They seek a land unknown to me.

Why do I listen to the song
Of pine-boughs singing all day long?
The secret that their songs unfold
Ten thousand bards have left untold.
