Across moon flooded skies the metallic chatter of magpies.
Kingfisher green calls back from rivers lost in rivers.

A weaver girl rests after a long days work. A
wistful feeling rises as a oxen trail passes by.


Rolling down the ever bright dipper the metallic chatter of magpies.
Kingfisher green sounds back from lakes lost in lakes.

A weaver girl is overwhelmed by the feeling of wistfulness
as ox carts roll down the moon flooded trails.
