Soup Song

How I make my soup: I draw water from a tap. . .

I am not an artist. And the water is not so much
Drawn as allowed to fall, and to capture itself in a pot.

Perhaps not so much captured, as allowed to gather
Itself from its stream; the way it falls that the drain
Would have it.

But in this case a normal path interrupted by a pot;
For which soup is the outcome of all I do. . .
