9 If not right now, Then when to grow with flowers, And breathing in the light, surrender to the wind? If lost to you, When will I get a lover Aroused by morning birds and jealous of dusk trees? If not right now to breathe the fire out, How will I save my only honey for the beast? If lost to me, How will you get a lover Conceiving from the air and pregnant with the bees? I'll be your man if you will be my woman. I'll be your woman if You will become my man. I'll be your tongue if you will be my rumor. If not like this, then how? If not right now, then when?
