Translated by Rash-ha Muntaqaa

                             Nightqueen
                                                I know    you're not sleeping
                Catch    my words rushing
                                               to' you
                                                            and as
                                                                     I lean
                  against           the bed of blackest dim
                  which the
                                               star-cloud canopies
                                                                 - Fine-spun night-net beneath -
             How long a day!
                                                                  Own air              breathed in
       Picked all own way!
                                               Now that I can
                                                                        seize
                               your shadow               standing
                                        close to               my ease
                                                                                              How strange a dream!
                                                                                                                       As we
                                                                                                                 join-wing
                                                                                              Nightqueen!
                                      Sudden        on my moonly        quilt      
                           Selene throws            her gleam         serene
                                                 lights up
                                                                      I see
                                                          No you
                                                          Just me
