Those days which were washed away by my tears
Have now cast their shadows
In the clouds of these rainy days
The song that came to a stop
In fathomless pain
Now vibrates in these easterly winds
My joys and sorrows were so sweet
They made the twin strings
Of the lyre of my being
When they snapped who knows
Who knows when they lost their tunes.
