Once she had drowned and started her slow descentDown the streams to where the great rivers broadenOh, the open sky chant most magnificentAs if it was acting as her body’s guardianWreck and duck weed slowly increased her weightBy clasping her in their slimy gripThrough her limbs, the cold blooded fishes playedCreatures and plant life kept on, thus obstructing her last tripAnd the sky that same evening grew dark as smokeAnd it’s stars through the night kept the brightness still soaringBut it quickly grew clear when dawn now brokeTo see that she got one further morningOnce her pallid trunk had rotted beyond repairIt happened quite slowly that she gently slipped from god’s thoughtsFirst with her face, then her hands, right at the last with her hairLeaving those corpse-choked rivers just one more corpse
