    Whatever it is that flies the crow close
    Treetopping free as a bird,
    Whatever it is that ascends on its wings,
    Blows inside of me.

    Whatever it is that drives the waves wild
    Whitecapping free on the breeze,
    Whatever it is that contends in its midst,
    Knows inside of me.
