to gaze at My own beloved land gazes at me with the eye of an orphan
to vow I vowed love eternal
to bow for five years I've seen her bowing under the terrible burden of self sacrifice
askance not one look askance at me 
to fall out of love with her I fell out of love with her
coward and coward that I am, I flee from her pale face
to flee flee ; fled ; fled
sunken I flee from her pale face ° her sunken chest
to hurl into what abyss do I hurl myself
flaw what does this fatal flaw come from
to displease or a servant displeased me 
ill-tempered And I become rude and ill-tempered
