Barge of Heaven (Pour It Out For Me)

adapted from Sumerian by Starhawk
(translated by Thorkild Jacobson)

Your crescent-shaped barge of heaven
So well-belayed, so well-belayed
Full of lovliness like a new moon
Your fertile fields well-watered
Hillock lands well-watered, too
At your mighty rising
The vines rise up and the fields rise up
And the desert is filled with green
Just like a living garden
In the heat of the sun, you are the shade
A well of water in a dry, dry land
Swelling fruit to feed the hungry
Sweet cream to quench our thirst


Pour it out for me, pour it out for me. Everything you send me
I will drink!
