Oh sailer on the Nile,
Won't you gather us some grain?

Won't you listen to our sorrows?
Won't you sail away our pain?

Oh, Nile Weaver wont you steal,
Steal away our sins and sinners

Dear, Nile Weaver won't you,
Won't you make us real again?

I love the emotion that comes from this piece. It is the perfect length for what it tries to accomplish and it does! Its pretty mournful I think. It reminds of that wish deep in your heart. That wish, for when all seems lost, to be righted again. That universality is what connected with me. Its lovely, elegant.

Sounds like a prayer to some forgotten ancient God, I really like it! ^o^
The first few lines are really good hooks!

Fav. lines:

"Won't you listen to our sorrows?
Won't you sail away our pain?"

I really liked the rhyming of grain in pain. It added to the effect of this poem. This is powerful and the image goes great with it. It's short and sweet and awesome. Keep up the good work :)

The very word Nile revives the memory of a civilization that was famous in the long past.It presents too many historical people,pyramids and innumerable events.
Your fabulous poem took me on the banks of Nile for few moments.
The image is a vivid reminder of that legacy.
