There was a boy
Very strange
Enchanted boy;
They say be wander'd very far
Very far over land and sea.
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise
Very wise was be.
And then one day
A magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me:
The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return,to be loved in return.
And then one day
