  341.     

In Wanting To Make A Mark For Herself

in wanting to mark a name for herself
in the history of the flowing river

every morning she goes there
naked her black hair flowing over her body

her feet soft on the pebbles and with a little shiver
she touches the river with her toes

and then she plunges herself for a dip
she bathes her body and then she sings under the bamboo leaves

beside the great river. The neighborhood takes a look at her
Her beauty and her being naked.And she knew she made it.

Her name is carved on the water and her beauty
Forever flows on the notes of the song of the great river.

The Sea And The River

Since the first day
(The beginning of time) ,
The river and the sea
Are relevantly prime.

The sea needs the river
And the river needs the sea.
Such co-dependence
Was meant to be.

Hand-in-hand,
Unspeakably strong—
With one heart,
They venture along.

An awesome team.
A force in the earth.
The sea and the river—
Of invaluable worth.

The River And Her

in the slow history of the river flowing
she wants to mark her own name with her fingers

religiously she goes there on a ritual of her own
naked she dips her skin on the water

so soft are her feet on the bed of pebbles
deep down the fishes ask for more of her toes

touched the river begins to sing a song for her
the bamboo leaves keep watching what happens next

will love dance on the surface of flimsy reasons?
will passion appear and last forever?

the banks want to close in on them: the river and her
the sun is worried what will happen next


it did end, but it was sad, as sad as the butterfly that lost one of its wings.
the river loses its name as she plunges deep to the tight arms of death.

River Race

Is the river still running in 'rado,
Still hurtling over the rocks round those turns?
Does it yet throw spittle of rage-white foam
On that rocky river's edge my soul calls home?

Is the river still running in 'rado
Oh, please, let me see it one last time!
Death is here, I know. I see the old black crow
Waiting in the shadows of my mind.

Is the river still running in 'rado,
Where I ran and swam and played long ago,
Hair flying in the wind, sun-burnt nose.
Hear it roar in heaven, calling me home?
