As this incurable malady has been caused by my eyes
which showed (him) to me, why should they now weep for (him).
The dyed eyes that (then) looked without foresight,
why should they now endure sorrow, without feeling sharply (their own fault).
They themselves looked eagerly (on him) and now they weep.
Is not this to be laughed at ?
These painted eyes have caused me a lasting mortal disease;
and now they can weep no more, the tears having dried up.
Mine eyes have caused me a lust that is greater than
the sea and (they themselves) endure the torture of sleeplessness.
The eyes that have given me this disease have
themselves been seized with this (suffering). Oh! I am much delighted.
The eyes that became tender and gazed intently on him,
may they suffer so much as to dry up the fountain of their tears.
He is indeed here who loved me with his lips
but not with his heart but mine eyes suffer from not seeing him.
When he is away they do not sleep; when he is present they do not sleep;
in either case, mine eyes endure unbearable agony.
It is not difficult for the people of this place
to understand the secret of those whose eyes, like mine, are as it were beaten drums.
