Just let me go now:

for the night is dark today;

My days have overworn, my birds all flown;

And I have reaped the tears the gods had sown;

Today despair and death;

deep darkness over my head,

broods like an owl; cannot you understand?

Laughter or tears, for I have only known

Surpassing vanity: vain things alone,

Had driven me perverse and aimless band.

Let me go now, to somewhere strange and cold,

to the hollow land where useless men

find end of labour, where's rest for the old,

Freedom to all from love and fear and lust.

Just pray the Lord and to earth,

enfold my life-sick heart

and turn it into dust.
