Crossing a River Without a Bridge


Crossing A River Without A Bridge


In a canoe carved like ivory,

crossing east to west,

I will arrive at great halls,

singular and pure,

erected with utmost magnificence.


The pleasure of traveling

on so long a journey

will be within my embrace

as I emerge triumphant within sunbeams.


This trip will take me to my victory.

The answer to the mystery of the stars

I will bring with me.
