"The summer has come"
"The summer? It is the spring now"
"Yes I know, but for me it is summer"
"Why?" she asked giggling
"When you are beside me,
The world is very colourful,
The cuckoo sweetly sings,
The flowers blooms in many colours,
You have come to my winter,
With your spring and summer,
You filled my heart with flames of love,
I hear nothing but your sweet melody,
My heart was once laden with melancholy,
They all are evaporated
With your warmth,
I can embrace and hide inside you,
But I have to leave very soon,
I may not return, my time is up.
Then whom will you warm?"
" There will be many
Come for my warmth
The way you came to this geisha girl"
