The Basin With My Name - Poem by Orly Palmaria

One has to find in the river a
Basin which goes by a name
And the name is his own.
In the searching of mine,
Many basins named to rightful owners
Show up -
Some belong to people known to me,
Some to total strangers;
Some unoccupied,
Some have keepers truly proud.
Anybody wants to find
The one for him
The time he sees another
Right on his rightful waters.

Tarry a While!
Is home that far from here?
Is there not that mud-pool
Dug for the cow just yesterday?
Perhaps its better there
Because I thought
I saw my name on a basin
Where beasts bathe by -
Bovine bulls and boars.
