Analysis of Pantoum



Follow me child
Past the stillness of this land
Chase me beyond the rainbow
Farther than the eye can see

Past the stillness of this land
There lies a truth in every pain
Farther than they eye can see
The horizon stretches beyond pale

There lies a truth in every pain
A child in every soul
The horizon stretches beyond pale
Beyond the knowledge of this world

A child in every soul
Seeking answers in their quest
Beyond the knowledge of this world
Follow me child
