Barges flatten the water / till waves / roll aside / from the prow, / take distance / and break upon the river-bank. // Reeds move / and dampen the billows. // On the river /  the distance is crossed by foam / that separates left from right, / there, where the goal / has been passed. // With eyes looking ahead / steers the skipper / the vessel / towards another bend / in the counter current. // Crawling crosspoint / in going / passed the mill-point.
