Oh sweet lotus
Where art thou sleeping?
In the storm rain
Which shakes your violence
Atop your dead funeral pyre
Oh sweet lotus
How dost thou fair
To quake and tremble within my palm
And rest and dream within my breast
Oh sweet lotus
Where art thou holy congregation
To catch you as you fall from grace
From atop your burning funeral pyre
Oh sweet lotus
Where do you drift in the summer wind
Upon the nights skies and fiery stars
To rest in such sweet maiden's hair
And in her heart
Oh sweet lotus
In bloom upon my lover's breast
Do not embark your kiss of death
Upon our lips
But your kiss upon mine
To give her life
