Snake Boat

Down the backwaters on a snake boat,
singing with shadows of coconut trees;
with sixty four oars to keep us afloat,
down the backwaters on a snake boat.

The cormorant choir strikes the right note,
green fronds whistle with the breeze;
down the backwaters on a snake boat,
singing with shadows of coconut trees!
