Once I was thirsty


Once when I was thirsty

I drank from the river

The river of mystery

The mystery of nature

The nature of life

The life of men

The men of honour

The honour of gods

The gods of the land

The land of the people

The people of the town

The town of the river

From which I took a drink

Once when I was thirsty
