  4. 4.  A snake came to my water-trough  On a hot, hot day, and I in pyjamas  for the heat ,  To drink there.  In the deep, strange-scented shade  of the great dark carob-tree  I came down the steps with my pitcher And must wait, must stand and  wait, for there he was at the trough  before me…..  On a very hot day, the narrator in his pyjamas, headed towards his water trough to drink some cool and refreshing water, in order to beat the heat. Little did he know that a wild snake from the neighbouring jungle had crawled towards the water-trough too. The two are about to encounter each other in a subtle way. In the deep strange-scented shade of the great dark carob-trees, the narrator came down the steps with his pitcher. He suddenly saw the snake, stopped and waited, for there the snake was at the trough before him.
  5. 5.  …..He reached down from a fissure in  the earth-wall in the gloom  And trailed his yellow-brown slackness soft-bellied down, over the edge of the stone trough  And rested his throat upon the stone bottom,  And where the water had dripped from the tap, in a small clearness,  He sipped with his straight mouth,  Softly drank through his straight gums into his slack long body, Silently…..  Someone was before me at my water-trough ,  And I, like a second comer, waiting .  The snake reached down from a fissure: a narrow opening, cleft or crevice; a splitting apart or break; cleavage; to crack, split or cleave; in the earth wall in the gloom; a dark place: and trailed its yellow brown slackness soft-bellied down, over the edge of the store trough and it rested its throat upon the stone bottom. The water had dripped from the tap in a small clearness. The snake sipped with its clear mouth and softly drank through its straight gums into his slack long body, very silently. Someone was before the narrator at his water trough and he is waiting like a second comer.
