ODOP: Old Danilo (7)

They walked a while, either a long time
Or a short one – for while to tell a tale
‘Tis a thirsty thing, still we hear ’tis yet
A thirstier to go live one – and came
To an enormous gorge that separates
Russia from the world, farther down than the
Clouds are high. Danilo looked for birds’ help
To cross, but when he pointed out the trail
Across the gap that led to Vasilisa
Ivan ran ahead and lightly leapt it –
