 Whom will you cry to, heart? More and more lonely,
your path struggles on through incomprehensible
All the more futile perhaps for keeping to its direction, keeping on toward the future, toward what has been lost.
You lamented? What was it? A fallen berry of jubilation, unripe.
But now the whole tree of my jubilation is breaking, in the storm it is breaking, my slow tree of joy.
Loveliest in my invisible landscape, you that made me more known to the invisible angels.
