Move about in search of an answer

Let me ask the giant fish
The grand sire, who knows better

And he tells without water
You can live not a moment …

    Pure enchantment! I believe that fish even survived the deluge.They just do what comes naturally. Take care.

    Warmest regards,

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
