An old lion
Has no significance now,
His time has passed,
Of thinking and doing something,
He is not able to walk nor sit,
Everyone has his time,
After that, he has to roll in dust,
His paths of glory lead to grave,
This is reality of life,

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
