Thou lightened my dreams
And now waning thou art —
Evanescent being
In shimmering snowy gleam

Thou blossoms, my rose,
But rueful is thy bloom —
As in scarlet painted bud
From thy brittle body grows

Spirit that lit bright
Darkens inside thy chest,
For thy life, scant in days
Abandons thine azure eyes

Frosty wind swept breath
Off thy calm, serene face
Our journey shall end here,
Fare thee well, thou walk into night…

I looked in thine azure eyes —
Thou whispered:
My love…
I kissed thy trembling lips
For the last time

For the first time…
