I go where the sheep go,
With the sheep are my feet:
I go where the kye go,
Their breath is so sweet:
O lover who loves me,
Art thou half so fleet?
Where the sheep climb, the kye go,
There shall we meet!

Notes about green, red, and white dots
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it
and, despite my best efforts, this project has never received public funding. It is
supported financially by roughly 0.013% of our visitors.
So if you found
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
