By the Rijn

I just want to sit by the Rijn
During the sunset hour
Watching the reflections of old house and the shadows of passers-by on the water
And listen to birds that are busy chirping on their way home
And not thinking about those starlike eyes
Or the nights that are very long and packed
May we are free from misleading thoughts and repetitive songs, I pray
To walk the future on the new brick road
They say here there will be no tsunami and flood
But check those ruins on my shelf
Who cracks the dam’s wall?
I say, take it, I don’t wanna sing anymore.
