At dawn must I rise to till the rock
That our land has turned into

Of the land spirits aggrieved by paltry human respect
For the life of fellow man by his fellow

The earth has stopped breathing and sighed
Soldered tears has the moon shed
The earth was scorched at noon-day night
And our land has turned to hoeing rock.
