North wind, rain-source, come, come and thrash the passes. Go through Makheka, the Pass of Liphofu! Bringer of Spring, come carrying lots of fog. The clouds should make a shadow. The horse smells something like the mud of rain. There the old frog exclaims; he shouts and says the rain is coming! Rain-source, come, come, renew the land, decorate it with springs and greenery until a person’s heart is happy! Make thick showers of rain! Blow, rain-source; wander about, Spring-spreader (MM-S).
