I am dotted with silver threads

dropped from Heaven by the Gods;

Nature then takes me to adorn

her fields and valleys.


I am beautiful pearls plucked

from the Crown of Ishtar* (Goddess of Fertility)

by the daughter of Dawn

to embellish the gardens.


When I cry, the hills laugh;

when I humble myself, the flowers rejoice;

when I bow, all things are elated.


The field and the cloud are lovers

and between them I am a messenger of mercy.

I quench the thirst of the one,

I cure the ailment of the other.
