Where Do They Go To?

Where do they go to, when they go?
Deep in the river
Under the snow
Up in the treetops
Wing across air
Where do they go to
When were they there?

What do they find there, when they first seek
The courage of heroes
Strength of the meek?
Food for the spirit
Solace for soul
If they first fractured
How are they whole?

Where do they go to, when they go?
Rich men will wonder
Beggars may know
With sweet surrender
Comes this strange sight
Where do they go to
From whence alight?
