Some don’t forget and some do-
the memory of the past
Some cry of sorrow
and some sing to forget.

Some see in the cooling clouds
the lightening of thunder
For some, they bring to blossom
Their dry garden paths

Looking at the stalk of a lotus
some see the thorns
… and some the lotus
Some trample flowers under their feet
some go on weaving garlands
with them as usual.

Some no longer light a lamp
During their ever-sorrowful nights
Some stay awake with their doors open
Wishing for the moon to rise again.
