Play on, dear poet, your tunes melodious
In intensely profound tones in my soul—
Molten let my life rain down like a waterfall on your feet.
Let me forget all joy or woe, worry, unfulfilled desires—
Liberated let the heart traverse amidst the endless universe
Borne along forever on the blissful breeze.
