Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.
P. Vaull Starr
Tall young man on a big and mighty quest
To be first on top of the high hills crest
So that in the town they crown you the best.
Do you ever think of taking a rest
Up high on the tall trees in the birds nest,
Tall young man on a big and mighty quest?
‘Just like the beating heart inside my chest,
I’ll stop when my body is laid to rest
For in the town I must be crowned the best.’
‘I must scale the looming mountain biggest
In nothing but long pants and a tight vest
For I must meet the demands of my quest.’
Have the Gods up high in the blue skies blessed
You yet in your big quest to pass the test
Set by the people to crown one who’s best?
‘The Gods on me did choose to play a jest
When they bid the people to crown a guest
Who went not on a big and mighty quest
To be in the town crowned the only best.’
