The hills for the uplands.

The clouds for the rain,

The grass for the plain,

The sugar for the cane,

The wheat for the grain.

And the wind-songs played,

And the sand blew

And the hills stood tall

And the clouds gathered grey,

And the grass ever grew

And the wheat constantly swayed.

You said you couldn't see.

But you could.
