Beside the running water
Falling down the hill
I met a young man , handsome and good looking
Yet, frazzled and bored 
Sitting all day long 
Beside  the running water

Young man, why are you
Sitting all day long
Frazzled and bored
Beside the running water
You cannot know and hope you will not be bothered
( in a voice sounding like a moving train: unrest and unbalance)

Many rivers i have crossed
Many mountain i have levelled
Many wide animals i had met
Inside many of the thick forests
As i cross, crossing many borders
Keeping my eyes firmly in a vision
Like a hunter that is hunting for God

Many moons i have counted
With sun  rising and falling
Day by day, i lingered in the melt of its heat
Searching for the most beautiful in the world
That i may stay with for better and for the worse

I have crossed many rivers
Seeing beauties and beauties of feminine attractions
Still, like a grave, i cried, crying for more
Until i see the lord of all beauty
The beautiful that beautify the beauties 
Young man, what made thee
Thy little sense carved in a big box 
Searching and pondering over and over
A never ending finding : the beautiful of the world
The earth, oceans, rivers and the desert all inclusive

Beauty lies in the choice
He who found choice has found the beautiful
 For choice makes a woman beautiful in the eyes of man
