They ask me to play on a lyre
That long has been still and decayed.
But ne’er a note have I played.
Nor can I the Muse re-inspire.
She chats without ground or fire
Until she has tortured my encephalon.
She chuckles to scoff at my hurting ;
She has mocked me the piece I lamented.
In my psyche. lonely. sad. and tormented.
Neither pleasance nor sorrow remain.
There one time was a clip. it is true–
A clip that. alas. has departed.
When friends who were generous-hearted.
Applauded the poetry I could make.
Of those happy yearss but a few
Obscured remembrances yet stay.
As after some high vacation.
Still linger cryptic sounds ;
Or. after the concert resounds.
The after tones whisper off.
For I am a works immature.
Torn out of the Orient where
The aromas sleep on the air
And life is a dream to temptingness.
Ah. memories of all time endure.
My Country. of vocals taught to me
By trilling birds from the tree.
The waterfall’s silvery boom.
And out on the far-reaching shore.
The groan of the sounding sea.
While yet I was simply a kid
I knew how to smile at your Sun.
And inside my chest had begun.
Like volcanic fires to fire wild.
The desire that the poetries complied
By a poet’s keen vigorous head.
Might call to the Swift traveling air current ;
“Speed off. and sing to proclaim
To the furthermost zones. of Her celebrity.
In Earth and in Eden enshrined! ”
I left Her. my Motherland place.
A tree stripped of foliages and turned prohibitionists.
Now gone are the carols that I
Once American ginseng. e’er I started to roll
And churned the huge ocean’s white froth.
To get away from my awful fate:
Excessively foolish as yet to anticipate
That alternatively of the good which I sought.
I should plough from the ocean moving ridges naught
But a ghost of decease haunting me.
For all of my dream laden hours.
Love. avidity. palaces in air.
Beneath the bluish skies I left there
In that far-off part of flowers.
Ah. make non appeal to my powers
To sing about love. for. like lead.
My bosom is weighed down. and in apprehension
I roam through this waste without peace ;
The stabs in my psyche ne’er cease.
And all inspiration is dead.
