Dear painter, I am sure you can
draw a smile on any face but
can you draw a teardrop on them?
I do not think you can, for who
can draw drops of tear or the rain
as transparent as the clear light!

I know this from my own experience that
smiles of every sort can be feigned
but can you with tears do the same?
I do not think you can, for who
can shed drops of tear or the rain
as lucid as the fading of the night!

Yes, even in death I shall be happier
for a drop of tear than all your laughter, combined!
