Gold found its reflection in the silver moon.

Her silken hair was bathed in sweat.

Quietly in the night a poem.

Ocean fish are golden.

A fish swam brightly through the stars.

A myth swam in the watery depths.

I'm a poet. I know it. That's why I wrote it.

In the shoe of a watchmaker stood a watchmaker.

The watchmaker drank coffee from a slipper.
