Hope the flower opposite the bulrush

smiles like my love for the verdure

cypress plays tenderly with the rays

graves become fragrant wedding chambers

pulse of the forest gallop of a doe

next to where we two were laid

wild lilies dripped their souls

a bloody rose my joy’s bloom.

I see the breeze playing with your hair

your eyes are deep as I find

the path of my life this April

I no longer fear for the anemone

which wilts in the love of life

and I charge to drink the nectar of your lips.
