You, clear and clean water of
Pure thought of our unadulterated 
Devoted instrument of divine

Born with us you were,
In our early years 
Every step of ours you
Tenderly attended,
The road of virtue
Advising us to take


Little by little, 
As years passed by, 
The path of honesty we lost 
From our sight 
You, Oh innocence, 
Slowly but persistently
Were chased away,

Without you, our hearts 
A desolate place has 
Grown to be,
An unbearable desert 
Of regret,
A drop of your virtuous dew, 
Upon our sinfull lips we 
Pray to fall, 
Children to become

    "You, clear and clean water of" Clean, crystal feeling that reminds me of Elytis and the Mediterranean with its gentle sadness.
