I move quickly across the sky
It's reflection floats above
In my uncle's old tin boat
I disturb the peaceful calm around me

In splashing, glimmering tendrils
The water hits my face
A heat-laden breeze chases off mosquitoes
So I am left with billowing, clear air to breathe
While I rattle the sky beneath me
