SENTIMENTAL SONG

Do you remember the forest
The stream that was like a fairy tale
A dream
And the silent evening's voiceless speech
Do you remember?
It was far far away
Do you remember the shining earth
That smiled in loving eternal mirth
How that Spring sang with magical power
Do you remember the stream, the forest?
Do you remember the night coming on
Stream and wood like a fairy tale
Do you remember far far away
Come to the world of endless memories
Come!

STREET SONG

The sad song sung by a wandering singer
Sounds beneath my window
How many times have I heard it before?
So it seems
as though I had woven that song
You would think
it was I who cried in that song.
You would think
I was singing that song
out of longing for you.

Translated by James Russell
