THE SADDER I AM

The more I believe that I am come from blue Heaven
the more my place appears among the blue-pearl stars.
I am sad now Hцhdei the Wise has gone out
Into Heaven, pursuing blue Orion.

The more the three hinds of Orion call nearby, the sadder I am.
The more Hцhdei the Wise summons his horses from Heaven, the sadder I am.
I am led further away by the sadness in my heart,
I am sent into Heaven’s blue mist by my sadness,
I am making friends with beauty of being sad.

I am sad when blue Orion
Shows the path for Hцhdei the Wise to gallop,
Joins the misty earth to the seam of  Heaven.
And drink at midnight from the lake’s blue waters.

The more the three hinds of Orion call around me, the sadder I am.
The more they dwell within my heart, the sadder I am.
The firmer they are within me, the sadder I am.
The more I am alone, the sadder I am.
These are the qualities of sadness.
