O rabid storm!
Destroy my shanty
as badly as you can.
I will raise it over
for my trust in life
is still intact.

O mediator of menance!
Scatter my dear things
as far away as you can.
I will get them all back
for my diligent hands
are still ready to toil.

O villainous vandal!
Snatch my unalloyed joy
as much as you can.
I will earn it again,
for grit in my blood
is still alive.

Kind solace in a dying hour!

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
