"Slowly the stream arrives
On the shore

It's a sad autumn
song Monotonous
Who cries after the sunny days.
"I hear a higher voice
On the coast
Dominating the sound of the flow
What is this touching
voice that enchants
me Like a sad and sweet sobbing
Isn't it my poor muse
who is having fun
singing to forget
me Come back sadly forsaken
My thought
to your yoke will bend"...
A copy of the final version is attached from another hand with some corrections.
