Mourning Moon,

Come not to me.

But let your light,

Fall upon

Someone else.

Mourning Moon,

Leave me be.

For he is not dead,

No,

'Tis not so,

My love does not lie,

Cold upon the ground.

Mourning Moon,

Come not to me.

Scatter your beams

Elsewhere,

Please.

Mourning Moon,

Mourning Moon,

This prayer

I send

Up

to

Thee.
