Of Love And Time


My life through the startled air!
Beware of the branches of the palm tree;
And like the feelings of sadness,
Overcoming it with the affluence of love and time.

On my wedding night,
On your wedding night,
On his wedding night,
On her wedding night,
Like the skeletons left over after a feast!
But, my life is like a gesture of a command.

Of a joyous bridegroom through the startled air!
In a pleasant land to think about my Maker;
By land or by sea i will follow Him.
Love is sunshine but hate is a shadow,
The day is restless but the night is very quiet!
However, man is imperious but woman is feeble.

My life through the startled air!
From afar off with words from my mind to toch you;
And like the dexterity of my struggles in this world,
But this vessel is always strong to move on! !
My life through the startled air;
Though it bends me down, it will always obey my muse.

I saw the woman!
How beautiful that she was;
Wide open to the air with faces of her children.
My love is pure like a shape in the moonlight,
My heart is clean like the village's clock to lead me on;
For my wants are but a few on this journey like,
The affluence of love and time to overcome.

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
