A heritage of vision
To smell the rose's fragrance
To watch the distant moonlight fill
To understand that life is more

Of sailing ships and kings
And some are given wings
Some have a golden spoon
While some walk on the moon
And don't you know the life that lives
Is just as rich and beautiful
As man with all his intellect
Oh, who's to say the nightingale

And sing to one another
For all that lives are brothers
The elephant, the whale
All weavers of the tale
So palomino lie back down
The hawk flies with the morning dove
As far away as you may go
It's in your dreams that you will know
