Today Orveli’s day is stormy. People has lost their compass. Orveli wrote the poem – Compass – many decades ago.

The Compass

South – child,

East – youth,

West – adult,

North – elder.

 

South – hunger,

East – lack,

West – weath,

North – abundance.

 

South – weeks,

East – screams,

West – leaps,

North – sleeps.
