Hello I require your assistance, my fellow intellectuals.
I have an urge to translate this beautiful poem: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/khalil-gibran-god-lyrics.html
But I can't quite understand certain lines;
- "But God made no answer, and like a mighty tempest passed away."
- "And God made no answer, but like a thousand swift wings passed away."
- "And God made no answer, and like the mist that veils the distant hills he passed away."
What is the meaning of "passed away" in this context? I know it means 'to die', but how can that be? Maybe he just disappeared?
I'd love to hear your opinions on this.
