I shot an arrow into the air
It fell to earth I know not where

I found again in the heart of a friend

I shot an arrow into the air
It fell to earth I know what where
For who has sight so keen and strong
To follow the flight of an arrow long
I breathed a song into the air
It fell to earth I know not where
For who has ears so keen and strong
To hear a song that has long gone
Long long afterward in an oak
I found the arrow still ubbroke
And the song from beginning to end
I found again in the heart of a friend
