WHEN THE market is over and they return homewards through the dusk,

I sit at the wayside to watch thee plying thy boat,

Crossing the dark water with the sunset gleam upon thy sail;

I see thy silent figure standing at the helm and suddenly catch thy eyes gazing upon me;

I leave my song; and cry to thee to take me across.
