O, all-devouring Death turn thy chariot
Have you not seen the blood-sucking leeches
Eating up the apple of life?
Chase them, seize them, carry them to Hell
Seize the beauty of flowers or the light of the sun
Take off the green leaves of the evergreen trees
And make the world bereft of life-
I will have no objection.
Turn the day into night,
The seas into the plateau,
Turn the green grass into seared yellow-
I’ll never feel woe.
But not come to my Lovelia ere we leave
A track of ever-glorified love behind us. 0 0 0
