A seed is buried in the ground
And wonders in the deep,
How long will I be kept down here
And in the soil sleep?
The farmer pushed me down, down here
He must know what is right
So I will stay tucked in the earth
Where it is always night.
I will stay pressed in the soil
And rest here for awhile,
Until the sunlight wakes me up
And warms me with her smile.
The rain, it will come too, you know
For that, I also need
Until the plant that’s tucked inside
Breaks from my little seed.
And yes, yes I, will soon sprout up
To flower in the sun;
The day will wrap her arms ‘round me
The time of darkness done.
