The Hymn of Sweet Soul

Drape the night over my shoulders like a cloak of the world,

call the birds of the stars from outer space and fly near my city garden.

Sing a song of the giants from huge city of platinum,

awoke the drowsy city of the world with a start.

Oh, the lightnings are in full bloom in the vault of heaven —the hymns of

sweet soul.

Your bones became transparent suddenly,

its light was flickering all over the body like the wings,

in a flash, the body became huge, higher than the large building

down the street.
