ENGLISH LANGUAGE TRANSLATIONS
Necessarily to forget.
Simply because your sorrow has mingled with mine
As evenly as the way moonlight has blended into
the hills. And whenever
The night feels as cold as water, it touches my old
A tiny piece of alum
Can then drain out all
If into our heart is put
Can it also
Drain out all the yesterdays?
