He came to the water's edge to drink at night.

And knelt beside the reeds to plunge his hand.

Proud Tumeken looked up at movement bright.

To see a figure stood upon the strand.

Elidinis walked by the riverbank,

For who had come alone, unmarked, to this,

Her stream of life with woods on either flank?

A stranger, yet soon greeted with a kiss.

The sun he snared, a jewel to feed her dream.

Rich life within her shared with all the land.

The Kharid-ib given beside the stream,

But now he sleeps her dreams have turned to sand.

When he awakes and stands upon the shore,

He looks and weeps, alone forevermore.
