I take twenty steps 
I take twenty steps and then I am refreshed
I take twenty steps and take a cup I do not toil I do not sweat my feet are soft my body safe
I take twenty steps and I take a cup and I press the cup under an arctic chilling stream, the button is my well
I take twenty steps and my soul is soothed my tongue is wet my thirst is relieved
I take twenty steps and drink all I want under the humming shelter of a large hospital
I am treated well. I do not work for water, my children do not dry under a baking sun
I take twenty steps and back again for water and Her journey has just begun
