Once upon a time!
Once upon a time,
the beautiful blue river loved
a strong green tree;
The green tree lived
amid the wet blue river;
After decades, the river dried up;
leaving not even a drop of love;
And the green tree too uprooted
without even a leaf of life!
The blue river was my beautiful Mother!
My handsome father was the green Tree!
and now I am the oasis in the desert!
