Only one thought


Only one thought flashes across my mind, only one thought:

Who has given me such impure power of talkativeness, this meaningless babble?

Mother, I know my only companion was silence.

Who has taken that silence away from me, Mother,

And who has taken away the cheerfulness of my heart?
