“Three things are too wonderful for me.
Four things I do not understand.
The way of an eagle in the sky,
The way of a serpent on a rock,
The way of a ship on the high seas,
And the way of a man with a girl.”
Once again we have the numeric formula of 3 and 4. The 4 things that he cannot understand, even though they are wonderful, are: 1) a flying eagle, 2) a serpent on a rock, 3) a ship sailing on the high seas, and 4) the sexual encounter of a man and a girl.
