The Water Bearer

The load I carry on my back
Refreshes and replenishes.
I pour the crystal clear cascade
And it is received where it is most needed.

I am guided to my limit
By the cetaceans of the sea:
Dolphin, whale, porpoise, manatee,
Air breathing dwellers of the deep.

When day and night are equal
I am in alignment with the above
And as of now the firmament is
Arranged accordingly.

Listen to the great waters,
Listen to the sea,
Listen to the dwellers of the deep,
For they are speaking to you now,
