Was his way
To play the flute
Aside the river
Made snake rise, mesmerized
But, what no one really knew
Was this rather odd creature’s guile
Had the power to transform serpent
Into a beautiful flower, tis then,
Unable to conjure up his evil
Snake realized, he was being played
For a fool, for he could not see
A trace of his reflection
As only the lake showed
The exquisiteness
Held in the sounds
