Julrane’s next project involved her garden’s waterwheel plants,
Which entangled her feet, as though catching invaders.
At first she had fun watching her step,
But it impeded her properly tending other plants.
Another problem confronted not only Julrane, but Gulfia;
The problem of sea-serpents, dendans, and other invaders
Swimming over the city walls to do damage.
Julrane was unconcerned, trusting her mind and plants.
She planted rows of waterwheels along the wall,
Growing nets to entangle any wild, destructive invaders.
Each trapped creature was carried into the distance
in cutoff net sections, which regrew, being plants.
Julrane, however, left herself one small waterwheel bed.
Distraction though it was, she liked playing invader.
