His final conquest

(1911)  Ei surera sarita tiire

On the riverbank of this same tune
You had come, yes, come had You.
With Your magic flute and its unique music,
Rhythm You did infuse.

Upstream tugged, the river, she had capered
Upon heart's tide, swollen with rising devotion.
You had watched, and You had laughed;
You had pierced her with a floral shaft.

That same flower-dart has got dispersed
Where there is longing, all around the universe.
In love You are present; You dance to its hymn...
Earth having flooded, heart You did vanquish.
