		"luck"
		-------------------------------------------------------

		I have luck!
		children shout
		fetching the ball
		from the currents of water

		while it -- shines in the sky
		golden in laughing -- young

		hold out your hand -- make a fist
		enclose the burning disk
		and loudly -- loudly shout
		I have luck!
