But all sorts of things and weather

Must be taken in together

To make up a year

And a sphere.

And I think it no disgrace

To occupy my place.

If I am not so large as you,

You are not so small as I.

A very pretty squirrel track.

If I cannot carry forests on my back

Neither can you crack a nut."

The lovely and fierce orange blossom 

That smells so much of joy.
