English.png English text

father a clouded northern sky
mother a troubled southern sea
brother a smoky western fire
sister a muddy eastern field

seeds of fire sleep in the field
seeds of sky sleep in the fire
seeds of grain sleep in the sea
seeds of rain sleep in the sky

quarter the wheel to make it go
quarter the earth to make it roll
under your feet like a moving stair
climb so high you'll reach nowhere

four is two is three is one
quarter the city to make it done
quarter the carcass to feed the corpse
quarter the heart to feed the hearse
