Hundreds of stars
in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells
on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds
that go singing by,
Hundreds of lambs
in the sunny weather.

In the first stanza the poet talks about how there are hundred of starts in the sky and how there are hundreds of shells on the shoere and hundreds of birds and hundreds of lamb.

to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees
in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies
on the lawn,
But only one mother
the wide world over.
