I travelled through the yellow springs,
Weary of soul and heart –
Oh, how my eyes brimmed with tears.
So much suffering and wailing,
I cannot bear it –
My heart cannot bear it.
I walked through rivers of tears and blood,
The bones frightened me –
I wanted to go home.
Soothed by your song,
I listened – oh, I listened.
The yellow springs did not amuse me.
I flew back to you with wings of joy.
