By the Darkness overclouded.
O Esthel wherever you go, I'll await
And I pray you : "Come back safe and sound!"
Though you laugh, but my heart does really burst
In a scream; and I wake up in tears.
I have tried to console myself in the verse,
In the soothing silvery beams.
In the tremble of strings, when the harpers played
In the tunes of old I sing
I've dreamt of a castle in a land far away
Where I may become your queen.
Being together we can prevail any foe,
But the death which hunts all around.
So I beg: "If you can, be back to the home."
And I pray you : " Come back safe and sound!"
