I Shot An Arrow Into...

I shot an arrow into the air; It fell to earth, I knew not where;; For so swiftly it flew, the sight; Could not follow it in its flight; I breathed a song into the air; It fell to earth, I knew not where;; For, who has sight so keen and strong; That it can follow the flight of song?; Long, long afterward, in an oak; I found the arrow, still unbroke;; And the song, from beginning to end; I found again in the heart of a friend;
