Smiling face lit a lantern;

Beyond the mountains so high;

Fluttered wings spread everywhere;

Flowers bloomed, leaves where bright.

 

Mist of coldness passed away;

Dew drops jumped down to earth;

Smiling faces crawled along;

Echoed music of joy everywhere.

 

Leaves came brighter and brighter;

Drum beats higher and higher;

Heard music as loud as it could;

Dancing souls every where.

 

Light from lantern came dimmer and dimmer;

Dancing steps came slower and slower;

Voice of music came harder to hear;

Flowers faded, and leaves where dark.

 

Howling wolfs and foxes all around;

Sliced the smiling face bit by bit;

Danced in joy, leaving face of terror;

Hooting Owls beats the drum.

 

Echoed music Drum louder and louder;

Lit a lantern of their own;

Faces laughed with shiny teeth;

Coldness and mist spread allover.

 

Beat of drum came slower and slower;

Dancing steps came slower and slower;

Voice of music came harder to hear;

Hooting Owls slowed their rhythm.

 

Laughing faces faded away;

Shiny teeth came rusty in time;

Beyond the mountains so high;

Came the smiling face again happily.

 

Never ended the wheel of time;

Came again again and again;

Something changed slowly;

Something changed rapidly.

 

Souls where teared inside the wheel;

Some came from nowhere;

Some went to nowhere;

Even, wheel never tried to stop.
