The 3 rd Sister Song



I swam up the river and,

while deep in the dreams of my own,

castles peeped out amid forests on land

and fields where green vines were grown.

Bunches of grapes so sour and sweet,

birds in the sky singing: twee-twee-twee-tweet...

The sun was baking, for chill I was striving

Cool happiness is the pleasure of diving...

In a creek I saw children at play

naked they were on a sunshining day

laughing , bathing so joyfull, delighted

dashing and splashing with pleasure excited

but they caught sight of me and then they

got frightened, stopped playing and ran away

A little black beast barked brutely at me

so I too got scared and rushed back to the sea...

"Oh sisters of birth

a paradise on earth!
