Clouds in the night sky,
Leaves on the streets and sidewalks,
A dog barks two times

Intermittently the light
Of the full moon permeates

The graceful branches
Of the blossoming plum tree
Moving in the wind

From the window of the house
She observes her neighborhood

A cat in the shade
Sleeping in the mid-day heat
Beside the old fence

They discuss their wedding day
And who they want to invite

Walking in the cold,
Passing the ice filled fountain
In the city park

Raccoons inspect the garbage
When nobody is looking

Behind the houses
And in all the alleyways;
Life is there as well

He writes a nervous letter
To an old monastery

High in the mountains
Accessed by a two-lane road
And a long footpath

Kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison
