Where is my fortress built of sands,

And your willow-hair, sister?

Once I had a thousand friends:

Soul’s half and life flew faster.

Life is faithless…

Daddy, why you cut a cane?

Granny, where you lost your teeth?

You agree with fate in sane,

Life is passing…

I seek my pretty dog,

I missed his grievous eyes…

He was so nice:

Life is incorrect…

Wanting grasses worries butterfly,

Tender wings twisted by the wind.

Oh, silken my…

Life is temporal…

Honey girl, but I’m a black,

You made fun of me and left.

And you weeping wrote me a letter

From the back,

Sans me

you gain your ends and glad:

Life is transient
