In the wide bed

Under the freen embroidered quilt

With flowers and leaves always in soft motion

She is like a wounded bird resting on a pool.



The hunter threw his dart

And hit her breast,--

Hit her but did not kill.

"O my wings, lift me--lift me!

I am not dreadfully hurt!"

Down she dropped and was still.



Kind people come to the edge of the pool with baskets.

"Of course what the poor bird wants is plenty of food!"

Their bags and pockets are crammed almost to bursting

With dinner scrapings and scraps from the servants'

lunch.

Oh! how pleased they are to be really giving!

"In the past, you know you know, you were always so

fly-away.

So seldom came to the window-sill, so rarely

Shared the delicious crumbs thrown into the yard.

Here is a delicate fragment and her a tit-bit

As good as new.And here's a morsel of relish

And cake and bread and bread and bread and bread."



At night, in the wide bed

With the leaves and flowers

Gently weaving in the darkness,

She is like a wounded bird at rest on a pool.

Timidly, timidly she lifts her head from her wing.

In the sky there are two stars

Floating, shining...

O waters--do not cover me!

I would look long and long at those beautiful stars!

O my wings--lift me--lift me!

I am not so dreadfully hurt...
