When the moon dances in the flirting sky
With the stars giggling and cheering their mother on
And the wind making love with the leaves
In the clear view of all shapes of eyes without a care
And the fireflies light in love and happiness
I shrink into a little ball, hiding in the dark sky and
Missing those arms on your shoulders which accompanies you to my detriment.
When the cock crows
And announces your approaching steps
And the dogs bark in love and welcome
The happiness that sleeps in me wakes
For I always peep on the toes of darkness
Discretely wishing you close to be my vehicle,
Eyes and mountain to help me see farther into the passions of the skin
Now you are here
In tired clothes and old shoes
Possessed by deep sleep as your nose roars like the hyena
What do you expect when the yearnings drop carelessly
And the lion in you sleeps without a thought and will wake only to hit the road?
Care must be taken for these eyes on my head
Have started looking for solutions to satisfy the heart, the body is no firewood.
