The next line begins to the outside the left margin, right next to a water channel.
The first half of the line is hanging above the bottom pond; the following lines are
indented by a couple of inches, to leave space for the pond. The spacing of the
first 11 words <shey...chedy> is a bit exaggerated, and there are 11 nymphs in the pond below. Hmm...
