Deep is the sadness that gloomily comes over me,
Again I slip, Lord, into your house.
Long was the journey, my limbs are weary,
The shrines are empty, only against is full.

My thirsty tongue desires wine.
The battle was hard, my arm is stiff.

I feel air from another planet.
I faintly through the darkness see faces
Friendly even now, turning toward me.

And trees and paths that I loved fade
So I can secretly know them and you bright
Beloved shadow—summoner of my anguish--

Are You only exhausted completely in deep glowing
In the frenzy of the fight
With a pious show of reason.

I lose myself in toils and tones, circling,
With unfortunate thanks, I give Blessing
Beneath desires, I feel myself to the great breath.

A violent wind passes over me
In the thrill of combat where I lay in the cries
In dust flung on me by women on the ground:

Then I see a flame’s mist rising
In a sun-filled expanse
That includes only the fairest mountain hatches.

The land looks white.
