Is a pair of shades
And ice cold beer.
And a place to sit somewhere near

Under, under the ice,
Moving under ice,
Through water,
Trying to get out of the cold water.

when sweet water is everywhere?“

—  Rumi Iranian poet 1207 - 1273

„The waters speak of love and the breeze and the branches and the little birds and the fish and the flowers and the grass, all together begging me always to love. But you, born in a happy hour, who call me from Heaven: by the memory of your untimely death you beg me to scorn the world and its sweet hooks.“

—  Francesco Petrarca, Il Canzoniere

Canzone 280, st. 3–4
Il Canzoniere (c. 1351–1353), To Laura in Death
Original: (co) L'acque parlan d'amore, et l'òra e i rami
et gli augelletti et i pesci e i fiori et l'erba,
tutti inseme pregando ch'i' sempre ami.<p>Ma tu, ben nata, che dal ciel mi chiami,
per la memoria di tua morte acerba
preghi ch'i' sprezzi 'l mondo e i suoi dolci hami.
