Aquí mi traducción libre de Resolution.

The surge and clatter of whitewater conceals

how shallow underneath is, how quickly gone.

Leave that noise behind. Come here

where the water is slow, and clear.

Watch the crawfish prance across the sand,

the mica flash, the sculpin blend with stone.

It’s all beyond your reach though it appears

as near and known as your outstretched hand.

      El ímpetu y estruendo de la cascada ocultan

lo superficial y efímero de su interior.

¡termina tu ruido y ven!

      adonde el agua es lenta y clara

Mira los saltos del cangrejo en la arena,

                            el brillo de la mica, o al charrasco mezclado con la piedra.

Todo está                          fuera de tu alcance, aún si aparenta

             cercanía y familiaridad.
