Text:

They say there is a still pool 

even in the middle of the rushing whirlpool, 

Why is there none in the whirlpool of my love? 

If it were possible to give away my life 

in exchange for your love, 

how easy a thing Death would be!  

Like the ice which melts when spring be-gins 

not leaving a trace behind

May your heart melt towards me!  

Can this world from of old 

always have been so sad, 

Or did it become so for the sake of me alone?
