I. A Stranger
Because your voice was at my side
I gave him pain,
Because within my hand I held
Your hand again.There is no word nor any sign
Can make amend —
He is a stranger to me now
Who was my friend.
II. The Way of Memories
Rain has fallen all the day.
O come among the laden trees:
The leaves lie thick upon the way
Of memories.Staying a little by the way
Of memories shall we depart.
Come, my beloved, where I may
Speak to your heart.
