The singer said: This is how trees grow And how pebbles fade Slowly, but surely, From the murmurs of the river The singer, on the road to the city Humming a tune, in the ‘life’ of night Wearily, he told the wind: Destroy me! So long as my life is you! So long as fate continues to make its claim Consume me! In honour of the triumph of ruins This is how rain falls He said to those around him: Anything… but regret(s) This is how I died… standing Standing… I died like the trees This is how rain falls This is how trees grow
O Bird of Dawn, sing of our woes Rekindle our anguished sorrows Breathe out a deep fiery sigh Break this cage, and begin anew O caged bird, escape your confinement Cry out and sing for the freedom of man With a single breath of fire, Set free the people of this land The tyranny of tyrants and the cruelty of hunters Have blown my nest to the wind O God! O Heaven! O Mother Nature! Turn our dark night into bright dawn A new spring is upon us, And flowers are in full bloom The clouds in my eyes, Are filled with drops of dew This cage is dark and narrow, Like my heart O fiery sigh! Set this cage aflame! O Heaven! Don’t cut the prime of my life! O flower in blossom, Look at this lover’s face Again, and again, and again! O broken-hearted bird! Bring forth our freedom And shorten the tale of our estrangement Make it brief, as brief as you can Sing of our woes!
