On This Gloomy Earth
Dark red cherries, in my heart,
Listen to the crimson sea roar;
Moonlight, upon my bleak night,
Ushers me to the cyan sky.
Tiny stars, in my veins,
Trickle for many years...
A nightingale, in my universe,
Sings me to my dreams.
A white swan swims in my lake,
Looking for its lonely shadow...
A black swan comes to share its secrets,
Hoping to hear wedding bells jingle.
A pretty, young girl, in my life,
Blossoms like the white lilies;
She stains my cheek with a kiss,
I, a singer, with a new voice.
