One breath away
From Mother Oceania
Your nimble feet make prints
In my sand

You have done
Good for yourselves
Since you left my wet embrace
And crawled ashore

Every boy is a snake is a lily
Every pearl is a lynx is a girl

Sweet like harmony
Made into flesh
You dance by my side
Children sublime

You show me continents
I see the islands
You count the centuries
I blink my eyes

Hawks and sparrows
Race in my waters
Stingrays are floating
Across the sky

Little ones
My sons and my daughters
Your sweat is salty
I am why
I am why
I am why
Your sweat is salty
I am why
I am why
I am why
