Little Girl

Little girl where are you going?

Little girl what do you know?

You run in fields with your hair a’ flying.

And your happy face is all aglow

Little girl with sparkling eyes

Tell me what you know.

Little girl what are your treasures?

Little girl what do you love?

The sky is your home, but you walk on the earth,

As brave as a lion with the heart of a dove

Little girl I’ve never seen

A child with so much love.

Little girl why are you dancing?

Little girl why do you leap

In a sun-filled ballet with soundless music,

Where only you can feel the beat

Little girl with the song in your heart

How do you stay so light on your feet?

Little girl why are you happy?

Little girl what makes you sing?

Why does your smile soothe the sadness

Of cynicism’s lonely sting?

Little girl with the glow in your heart,

What is the spark of the warmth that you bring?

Little girl why are you restless?

Little girl what do you know?

Dancing in eternal fields

Of blossoms, crops, harvest, snow,

Little girl with the sun in your eyes,

Why do you haunt me so?
