Embers

I said, "My youth is gone
Like a fire beaten out by the rain,
That will never sway and sing
Or play with the wind again."
 
I said, "It is no great sorrow
That quenched my youth in me,
But only little sorrows
Beating ceaselessly."
 
I thought my youth was gone,
But you returned --
Like a flame at the call of the wind
It leaped and burned;
 
Threw off its ashen cloak,
And gowned anew
Gave itself like a bride
Once more to you.

גחלים

אמרתי," חלפו צעירותי
כמו אש המוכה על ידי גשם,
אשר לעולם שוב לא יתנדנד וישיר
או עם הרוח ישחק."
 
אמרתי, "אין זה עצב גדול
אשר את נעורי בתוכי כיבה
רק עצבויות קטנות
המכות ללא הפוגה."
 
חשבתי שצעירותי חלפה,
אך אתה חזרת --
כמו להבה לקריאת הרוח
היא קיפצה ובערה;
 
זרקה את מעילה האפור,
ושמה תלבושת חדשה
ומסרה את עצמה ככלה
שוב לך.
 
Thanks!
