Once upon a time
Once upon a time there was a young boy
Who fell in love with a girl who cooked mud,
This girl liked the boy who met her needs
With green notes that grow from the trees.
Once upon a time this boy grew up,
So did the girl who now worked in a farm;
Once upon a time the boy love to spend
Picking grains with the girl who spilled them.
Once he thought her laughter was so sweet,
He vowed to spend his whole life as its source;
Once she blushed under the warmth of his gaze,
She knew she'd give anything to ignite his eyes.
Once upon a time they held each other's hand,
Vowed to love till time grows silver on one's head;
Time elapsed, the boy commited a crime which cost his life,
And it was decreed the boy be hanged the following day.
None save a friend had they to seek for help,
Love, who willed to bear the punishment of a friend;
O Glory! He laid down his life--a folly in man's eyes;
The saved alone know the wonderful taste of love.
The boy's heart was full of him, and love bound him,
The more he thought, the sweeter his love grew.
He vowed in his friend's name he would likewise
In sorrow and joy till death do them part
To love with his all the girl who cooked mud.
Once upon a time a boy who owned green notes
Loved and grew old with a silver haired woman;
Once upon a time a girl who cooked mud
Lived in content with a boy wrapped in wrinkled skin.
