He wanted to climb to heaven
Took a ladder and went his way
Got stranded into the orchard
For fruits were sweet and tempting
Unnoticed hours slipped away.

Much later, we found his tools,
Spat pits and a handful of feathers
But no sign of him anywhere
He wanted to climb to heaven
But maybe he was just taken away.
