    Spring forth many rivers
    Spawning waters
    Of splendid fruit
    To capsize myth
    Eroding Me

    So many rivers
    Awash in seas
    Are casualties
    Through history

    Felt many rivers
    Exploring deep
    Divinity,
    Inside of thee

    Shiver me timbre
    And honestly
    Put to sea,
    The truth indeed

    So many rivers
    A quiver keeps
    Defending me
    The levy steep
    But dam,

    I'm free ~
