Give Me Pleasure
Give me the pleasure in simple things
Such as sparrow's songs and swallows' wings.
Let me not wander so far away,
but be content to get through today.
Give me pleasure to watch flowers grow
or take in the sparkling stream, its flow,
Roam around with fireflies in the dark,
Near my home or a far away park.
Give me pleasure to trek to the wood.
There, in silence and in peace I brood;
in its eerie buxom, dark and deep
where flowers, birds and tired leaves sleep .
Let's live in a farm once in a while
and watch chubby children's happy smile.
Run around bare-footed and wild
and warble songs like a little child.
Come friends, wander with me through my dreams !
Weave the magic moments seams by seams.
Across green meadows, away from care,
so serene the scenes, so clean the air.
