    another translation:

    As You Rise

    As you rise waters unfold
    As you lie down the waters spread

    You are the water led from its depths
    You are the earth taking root
    On which all things are built

    You shape globes of silence in the desert of sounds
    You sing nightly hymns on the ropes of rainbow
    You are everywhere you annul all roads

    You sacrifice time
    To the eternal youth of the exact flame
    Veiling nature reproducing it

    Woman you give birth to a body always the same
    Your own

    You are resemblance.
