Ode to water
Ode to Water
Away, away pains are drifting on wavetops
Sorrows esctatic dancing on water chest
Mood O mine, be void
Be emptied into water
Excerbate not your griefs
Halt not so sudden on your path
Put your burden on a leaf
Let it be afloat on river
Let it be dancing away as the wind blows
And your heart be played like a harp
A dropped-off leaf floats alone on water
Does it paint a line as it goes?
Then it disappears forever!
Water O! how unique thou art!
Wipest away all the signs
(If tears mix, can they be ever marked?)
Mood O mine, be vacant and bare
Stripped of your trouble
And emptied into water
I floated away all my pains on a leaf
Adrift and went down to the bottom all my ailments
And a tune was played upon my harp…
