Song of the Little Girl
 
 

That little girl went and sold
her heart to the wind.
Not enough laughter
under the big sky.
 

The little wind that stole
the heart of the girl
goes dancing by.
 

Look, how the trees shake
in the little hands of the wind
that stole the heart
of the girl.
 

Look how tiny they are
against the big sky,
sailing away.
 

O see how the sky is stained red
with the heart of that little girl!
