Translation (AJ):

To sit together beside the passing waters, To watch them pass; Together, if a cloud glides through space, To watch it glide;

On the horizon, if a thatched roof sends up smoke, To watch it smoke; In the surroundings, if some flower spreads penetrating fragrance, To let it penetrate in;

To hear, at the foot of the willow where the water murmurs, The water murmuring; To not feel, while this dream lasts, The time lasting;

But not having any deep passion Except for adoring each other; Caring nothing for the world’s quarrels, To ignore them;

And alone together, in front of all tiring things, Without tiring To feel the love, in front of all passing things, Not passing.
