LYRICS

Just to live under green leaves and see them
Just to lie under low stars and watch them wane
a kind heart

Just to sleep by a kind heart
and know it loving – again

Just to live, just to lie
just to sleep, just to live
just to wake, just to walk
a kind heart

Just to wake on a sunny day
and the wind blowing
and know it loving – again

Just to live, just to lie
just to sleep, just to wake
a kind heart

Just to walk on a bare road
in the bright rain, or a sunny day
under low stars
and know it loving – again

Just to walk, just to wake
just to sleep, just to lie
just to live, just to wake, just to walk
a kind heart

Just to lie, just to wake
just to walk, just to live

These, O these, 
and the night moon showing again
a kind heart – again.

poem – Marjorie Pickthall (1883-1922)
