See, I went down to the river.
See them pass one another at Arrindingmanja.
Was the sand shining brightly?
See them pass one another at Arrindingmanja.
The tide flowed along deep and dark.
See them pass one another at Arrindingmanja.
Rays in the channel single file.
See them pass one another at Arrindingmanja.
Was I still watching them?
See them pass one another at Arrindingmanja.
Trail making, moving on,
see them pass one another at Arrindingmanja.
Single file over the reef,
see them pass one another at Arrindingmanja.
Were they going on making a trail?
See them pass one another at Arrindingmanja.
Now gliding side by side,
see them pass one another and turn over.
