He who established the earth & the sky & the heavens
Many the scars which he has placed upon disconsolate hearts
Many the lips like ruby, & curls like musk
He has placed in the drum of the earth & the box of clay.


Chr 95

He who built the earth and the sky and [all] the heavens.
with how many a brand did He mark the sorrowful hearts!
Many a ruby lip and many a musky lock did He hide
in the [hollow] drum of earth and the box of dust.

F4 20

And this reviving Herb whose tender Green
Fledges the River-Lip on which we lean--
Ah, lean upon it lightly! for who knows
From what once lovely Lip it springs unseen!

Nic 107

Celui qui a posé les bases de la terre, de la roue et des cieux, que de plaies n'a-t-il pas creusées dans le cœur chagrin de l'homme! que de lèvres couleur de rubis n'a-t-il pas ensevelies dans ce petit globe de terre! que de mèches de cheveux parfumées de musc n'a-t-il pas enfouies dans le sein de la poussière!

P 241

He who the bases of earth and sky hath set
Full many a brand on hearts that sigh hath set;
O many's the lip like ruby and tress like musk
That He in the round earth's coffer to lie hath set!

Th 184

He who earth, sky and heaven did array.
Full many a scar on grieving hearts doth lay.
And many a ruby lip and musky tress
Hath buried in earth's treasure chest of clay.

Wh 137

He, who the world's foundations erst did lay,
Doth bruise full many a bosom day by day,
And many a ruby lip and musky tress
Doth coffin in the earth, and shroud with clay.
