Editor's note:
آراندا: قبيلة أبوريجينية (من سكان أستراليا الاصليين). هذه الاغنية قديمة جداً، ترجمها عن الآرندية ت. ج. ستريهلو. الاسماء الغربية في القصيدة عائدة لمقدسات أبوريجينية
[Aranda: an Aboriginal tribe (from the Australian original people). This poem is very old; T.G.H. Strehlow has translated it from the Aranda language. The foreign names in this poem refer to Aboriginal spirit beings.]
