A tiger took me

To the lake of the wounded

Amidst the mountain ranges

Spread from north to south;

Deer, stag and hare

Tiger, lion and hyena,

All had sought cure in this lake

Man captured the earth

Wounded the animals

It would have been enough for animals

To swim in the lake

To cure their wounds

The animals had hidden

The lake from men

But by crossing mountains

Traversing rivers

And destroying forests,

Men found the lake, too.

Man is a relentless animal

Without mercy.

He tried to capture the lake as well

With this the lake rid itself

Of its medical faculty

And hid within a cave

Amidst the mountains.

Freed from man

It will regain its medical powers

And appear again before the animals.
