There are forty angels in your face,
Forty-one snakes – within you – you keep.
Forty glasses of poison in your eyes
All of them – with my heart – I will sip.

As the land destroyed by clever trick
Again, I am the dust under your feet.
Plunge a poniard of the fight of love
Into me eyes,
I agree with it.

I fell down:
But what for are you crying :
You are the winner:
You should hug the skies:
My soul’s burning not knowing how to die -
Because of bitter tears of your eyes.

You are the winner:
But what for are you crying?!
