a salmon’s wisdom
summed up in bubbles of song
everlasting each word-pouch
bright on river water

deep as ponds subtle as streams
sunlight glancing circling water
cool the hand that tickles trout
summons a stippled magic

poor stranded immigrants
who now will sing your praise
raise wisdom from the depths
mark with hymns your graves
