In the mohua grove
The cuckoo is cooing on
Startled I wake up from my sleep
And find my home is empty
The lamp is fluttering in a gentle breeze
Leaving footprints on stale flowers
You have left for a far away alien land
Flowers shed without
Within I shed tears
In the bamboo grove the summer breeze sighs
Come my friend and tell me
Why did you leave me thus
So secretly and suddenly
Without even a word.
