It is a blessing, you see, this water, it is life.
It rains from the clouds down into the mountains,
collected into waterfalls and streams and dams.
It nourishes all just as you do your words:
You have tapped the source of all nourishment,
for it is the one who gives to all that blesses the land.
Don’t grieve for your abundance; celebrate
that you are fountainhead, dear ocean.
Water flows from your heart and courses
its many ways to the roots of more trees.
