In a melancholic wintry night,
Howling wind, bitter darkness,
Lying in gloom, dark dismay,
No fire in furnace, no candle on table.
Brooding deeply on her face,
My heart yearned for beautiful friend.
I saw a column of light in my surprise.
In speechless ecstasy, I rose in haste.
Breathless, trembling, burning,
Without shoes, I rushed to her.
Her smile illumined my heart.
Her beauty brightened my room.
O reunion bliss! O joy's aching pain!
Blessed is flame of light, lovely and sweet
Who struck chords of delight in my soul.
Asleep, I listen the music in wakeful dream.
The sun of logic and reason whirls away
When sees a flame in a lover's heart.
Yester night, everyone was fast asleep.
The winged air in summer night was still.
No star was blossoming in the welkin.
Moon which dazzles was also away.
The sky was wearing a black cloak.
The queen of the night and stars of the sky
Have come from celestial sphere on our planet.
Earth at night was brighter than the day.
Helen, ringed by moon and stars, was sitting
Like a fair sun in the company of a pale pumpkin.
The twinkling stars were singing an echoing song.
Man went on moon, it is not a wonder.
Moon came to kiss a woman is a marvel indeed!
