Daily long I to hear again
Sweet tales told me in warm moonlight
When birds no longer chirped nor sang
Sweet songs sang you in bright sunshine
When mortar and pestles in unity pounded
Long, long ago it was

Sweet stories of love rolled out of your mouth
When chickens were roosting in closed baskets
Sweet tunes emanated from your lovely throat
When prying eyes had closed in deep sleep 
Long, long ago it was

In warm embrace rested I on your shoulders
When lost was I in the paradise of your love
In total submission trusted I your sweet tongue
When sweet smelling flowers of love blossomed
Long, long ago it was

And then came the years of the hungry locusts 
Then the sweetness of the songs stopped
The ever flowing fountains of the tales ran dry 
The young roses catching fire withered coldly
The warm moonlight came no more
The bright sunshine came no more
Your sweet tales I heard no more
Your sweet voice sang no more 

But daily long I to hear again
Sweet tales told me in warm moonlight
Sweet songs sang you in bright sunshine
