- Rocks and more rocks
- on the stream bed.
- (or stones, smoother,
hard as a rock)
- The stream is so clear I can see
- in the
tickling wind of the water,
- laughing their slow
- From the edge of this well
streaming like a teeming streamer
- I see them,
- all these stones,
- peering up,
- at a scintillating blue ocean
- of sky.
