I shot an Arrow into the air It fell to earth I [knew]1 not where, For so swiftly it flew, the sight Could not follow it in its flight. I breath'd a Song into the air It fell to earth, I [knew]1 not where. For who has sight so keen and strong That it can follow the flight of a song? Long, long afterward in an oak I found the Arrow still unbroken; And the Song from beginning to end I found again in the heart of a friend.
