Hippocrates said the body is at the juncture of four rivers,

Multi-colored fluids endowing hot and cold, wet and dry

Hippocrates said that each body has its own unique temperament,

When the body falls ill it needs only to have the rivers realigned,

Flowing fresh and true under the skin

The physician purges polluted blood and bile,

And by the arts of his hands earns fame in the eyes of the gods
