These are the oaks that once stood here.
And shall the earth be all of paradise
That we will know? Roll the dice;
These are the nights when praise turns into fear.
These are the memories of a man without a past.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Therefore, let us sport us while we may.
These are the reveries of a man who climbed the mast.

Against windmills did go tilting.
These are the seasons of a girl and her horse.
These are the days of sunlight and high skies.

Was it a vision or a waking dream?
Let be be finale of seem.
These are the confessions of a mask.
