PARAPHRASE- My soul should find its self alone with dark thoughts of death not the only but all to get in my personal affair in hours of secrets. being silent in the closed space which i wasn't but was with the spirits of the dead that once was alive but died with death around and their shadows surrounds us. the night was clear but upset and the stars not shining down from the night sky but their blazing centers that seemed liked a endless fever. now my thoughts should not disappear but close visions that should from the spirits that shall pass no more like dew drops from the grass. the winds and the mist upon the hills dark but yet unbroken which is yet a symbol unbroken how it hangs high like a mystery of mysteries.
