TRANSLATION
“Let the pain not grow into a cry of distress
Let the ground not swell up like the boundless skies.

Let the dagger that is buried in my heart
Not become the voice of my heart.

Take my heart now if you so desire,
Lest the deal become too difficult.

Breathe a sigh of pleasant relief,
But with care.

(The cup of wine) may turn into
A wisp of smoke at your lips.”
