— Give me water, befriend my here
— There, my habit, is the well that reverses
— Give me water, sing my here
— There, my habit, the spring is a murmur of grasses
— Give me water, surrender my here
— There, my habit, the well’s route veins deep
— Give me water, light my here
— There, my habit, is the gurgling flow of the spring
— Give me water, glimmer my here
— There, my habit, the well is the hill’s percussion
