Oh that heart that o’er flowing with woes with sorrows of love for the love lost for the love the beloved that the lover hast lost oh those tears of blood that from the eyes do flood boiling up from heart a fire heart in flames of sorrows oh that soul that cries out its wailings of pain for lover lost oh that heart that soul that aches in agonies of longing oh that heart that melts from the flames of sorrow oh that soul that cries out cries sadder than the gazelle for her faun laying dead oh that soul forlorn
