When the day of a lover is merged in night .Again wakes his pain with redoubled might. For the loss of his love his lone day is dim; But the night is yet darker and sadder for him. Dark is the day when she comes not back, But the night is darker, deep black upon black For night to the lover comes heavy with gloom, .And fierce is the offspring that comes from her womb When the terrible child is brought forth it lives On blood for the milk which a mother gives.
