908 Water Mother                                          

"Water Mother, maid aerial, 

Ever on the peaceful waters, 

On the billow's foamy surface, 

With the moving waves before her

And the heaven serene behind her."

"From the sea her head she lifted, 

And her forehead she uplifted,

And she then began creation, 

And she brought the world to order

On the open ocean's surface,

On the far-extending waters."

                                             H. 27  W. 39"
