(788)  Hrdaya vidarii marama niunari

Having pierced my bosom and wrung my heart,
On what chariot of beauty did You depart
With fire and wind toward the blue yonder...
Into some far, far-distant star cluster?

Alone You arrived on a brilliant cascade;
The riches of my heart You won and took away.
Darkness impervious was inside my mind;
But, with Your own hand, ignited was a golden light.

You have left, but the scent of honey lingers;
On the lids of my blind eyes, light-stripes are etched.
Day or night, when there's a sweet and mild breeze,
Filled with pleasant memories, Your love accompanies me.
