Live, O you evening are you (the former) evening?
No, you are the season that slays (married) women.
A long life to you, O dark evening! You are sightless.
Is your help-mate (also) as hard-hearted as mine.
The evening that (once) came in with trembling and
dimness (now) brings me an aversion for life and increasing sorrow.
In the absence of my lover, evening comes in
like slayers on the field of slaughter.
What good have I done to morning
(and) what evil to evening?
Previous to my husband's departure,
I know not the painful nature of evening.
This malady buds forth in the morning,
expands all day long and blossoms in the evening.
The shepherd's flute now sounds
as a fiery forerunner of night, and is become a weapon that slays (me).
When night comes on confusing (everyone's) mind,
the (whole) town will lose its sense and be plunged in sorrow.
My (hitherto) unextinguished life is now
lost in this bewildering night at the thought of him who has the nature of wealth.
