Shy away from bow and arrow
Be not so bold to draw nor aim
For blinding love hit to the marrow
Dare not to grace this heart again
Do not beat your glistening wings
Above this woman’s empty bed
And do not pull at silver strings
That tied two hearts who once were wed
So long ago, my soul did quake
From a spear that pierced the clouds
Oh, how my trembling heart did ache
When my love broke his solemn vow
A paltry sum of time for me
To share his smile — my morning sun
For loss of love and dignity
Was lot in life since I’d begun
I feel that loneliness and I
Are well-acquainted, steadfast friends
Stay well within your starry sky
I do not wish to make amends
