Translation

1         I impregnate myself, I impregnate my body,

2         Just as the river has impregnated its own banks!

3–4        Clods of the street, the dirt of the alley,

5–6        A torrent of irrigation, the thirst of the garden.

7         The scorpion (stands there) steady;

8         When they (the water) come,

 

Rev.

9         when they will pour –

10       It (the scorpion) must not set in move!
