'Brought back the shadow of the night
 within the golden law,
returned the tale, from times of old,
from whence the light I saw.

It was the minute to resist
and yet to catch its sight,
it was the moment to persist -
(and not to sue my right !)

Whenever thou once leavest
the poem of that day:
try to perceive the notion - sign
and hope to find the way -

for once a second turned away
from which you may call "happiness",
will as a hindering wall remain
and mean some chances less.
