The Crow, The Owl And The Dove

A crow flew to me Kept its distance Such a proud creation I saw its soul, envied its pride But needed nothing it had An owl came to me Old and wise Pierced right through my youth I learned its ways, envied its sense But needed nothing it had Don’t give me love Don’t give me faith Wisdom nor pride Give innocence instead Don’t give me love I’ve had my share Beauty nor rest Give me truth instead A dove came to me Had no fear It rested on my arm I touched its calm, envied its love But needed nothing it had (repeat ch.) A swan of white she came to me The lake mirrored her beauty sweet I kissed her neck, adored her grace But needed nothing she could give Gar tuht river Ger te rheged (repeat ch.)
