Simple light of tender fabric,
Sole consolation, ah romance,
Moonlit world before the daybreak
Affection, love, you radiance,
Will you go with me? It’s not far -
Far as the grave - and lead me by
The veiled light of that cheerful star
Which lives in dreams and so will die!

translated by George Szirtes
