On the sea, the brilliant sea,
Colors jump for joy.
In the air, the lightest air,
Feelings dance with life.
With rays of light, the softest light,
The world begins to shimmer.
Through the waves, the gentlest waves,
Comes the whisper of the world-
"Beauty fleeting, watch me now,
For I am leaving."
On the sea, the graying sea,
Colors wash away.
In the air, the heavy air,
Feelings fade to none.
With rays of light, the harshest light,
Slinking shadows come to creep.
Through the waves, the cruelest waves,
Comes a silence to profound.
