GOLDEN HARP

With a knife I softly carved out
a harp of ivory
I stretched strings made of gold on it
I put my fingers on it
and I played a song
and the echo from the edge of the horizon
repeats my song

With a knife I softly carved out
a little flute from reed
I punched in eight holes
and all of it is wrapped
I placed my lips toward it
and I played a song
and the echo from the edge of the horizon
repeats my song

From cast copper I built a bell
I connected bell clappers to it
as flowers of a pommegranate
I placed my hand on it
and I rang out a song
and the echo from the edge of the horizon
repeats my song

I build myself a French horn out of a shell
I covered it with crystal
decorated with gold
I placed it close to my mouth
and I shouted out a song
and the echo from the edge of the horizon
repeats my song
