Tiakira, Tiakira, Kiara, Kao Gai
Éros encore a ébranlé mon cœur,
Comme un vent de montagne s'abattant sur les chênes.
Jamais plus vers toi je ne reviendrai
Jamais plus je ne reviendrai, Gyla
Profond et doux tu épuisais près de moi le désir.
Souviens-toi. Tu sais combien je tenais à toi.
Dans ma douleur qui coule goutte à goutte, un désir
Me vient de mourir et de voir les rives humides de
L'Achéron où fleurit le lotus, et de descendre vers Hadès.

Note: lines 4-5 appear to be based on the second stanza of the second fragment here.
