You Are the Secret Kept Secret
you are the secret kept secret,
the song only stars have known.
whatever the moon hasn’t told and why its shining,
whatever men spend life looking for, rarely finding;
whatever is sun and sod and songbird song,
and whatever clothes the fields in dew is you.
and i love you, but only the stars have known.
