There once t’was a man, whom had lost his own hand;
for it took by finger bones, and leaped to and fro!
As it ran off the wrist, with fingers walked with;
t’was a man whom had lost his hand, at the fault of skyward wind-
“Leap hand, LEAP!” cried the grass, thick as blades-
and “Run, flesh and bones!” wept the trees, thick as stone;
When the man chased it hence, with his limbs, thick and dense;
as his hand, did it sprint, as it hurdled through the fence!
Ballad’s Meaning: If someone is careless with their gifts,
they might just lose them…!
