An error in geography
Each day in this forest
a number of roads.
The work dog and peasant woman
From these places,
a hollow pillar of iron and a sound
like water. So, you translate
a perennial herb with an aromatic root.
Or   the sky
more darkened, meaning rivers?
You write the names of surrounding waters.
I am walking on a flat plain.
Here and there, beds of rock-salt.
(Let arrows show how strong the westerly winds.)
I locate by initials:
A wagonload of flowering bulbs.
A land of bogs and swamps.
You draw lines for water routes.
