This night is like you,
Quiet, serene and deep.
And yet,
All are dancing around
On the sacred
Melody wedding
Of heaven and earth :
The moon, in love,
Kissing the lake
The sky embracing the trees,
Stars crowning the peaks...

I have no words to tell you,
My mouth is empty of words,
And what could I tell you
When your silence
Enveloped me
In its love song?
Let me dance for you -
Salome who demands
Nothing in return,
But offers at your feet
Her flaming heart.
