have passed half the circumference of the earth;
that I have met you, the first time I fall for.
charcoal fire is much less valued,
its heat contains no spiritual life’s core...
amorous heart is the noble heart;
it I feel warmer than being a fireplace by.
my affectionate soul! so immense, infinite,
have waited every minute for your love to reify.
darling! please understand my sentiment:
I feel cold through nights in the lonely room.
wish I might have you cherish me dawn till dusk
that my solitary soul stays no more in gloom.
life will not be any longer tenebrous
evening dew to mist the countryside line.
my sweetheart! how I feel awkward,
able to express enough new feelings of mine.
only see all the inspiring joy in my depths rise
If I may be offered a life beside you to realize...
