Why Do the Green Grass Grow

Why do the green grass 
grow
And fill the fertile field?
Where'er man does not 
sow
They tend themselves 
and yield.

For when the rain would 
pour
And skate beside the hill,
They'd pave the fragile 
floor
To let the slope be still.

For when the weary feet
Walk by towards a home,
They'd serve to titillate
To let the sprain be 
gone.

For when a child would 
jump
To play luksong-tinik
And get a backside 
bump,
They'd weave a safety 
net.

For when a star would 
fall
To grant the wisher's 
dream,
The impact would be 
small
On land to break its 
beam.
