Remember those who did not come, those who were
Now they have not seen the ruin of sleep, they were
the good ones who were not shown dreams
All night long I dreamed with open eyes
that the colors would spread so that they would not be stolen from sleep
The rains were dancing and the ground was still
But the birds came and slept in the twisted branches so
that they were not even awakened by the wind
Whether it is raining heavily, there are thick trees, there is a girl,
such scenes have never been found in cities
The light of the eye drank and the
moon shone brightly so that it was not extinguished by the sun.
