Oh that the desert were my dwelling-place!
Let me now sing the heroic deeds of Vi??u who has measured apart the realms of the earth , who propped up the upper dwelling-place, striding far as he stepped forth three times. They praise for his heroic deeds Vi??u who lurks in the mountains, wandering like a ferocious wild beast, in whose three wide strides all creatures dwell.
Oh! that desert were my dwelling-place, With one fair spirit for my minister, That I might all forget the human race, And, hating no one, love but only her!Rochdale
