My song! It is time!
Wider! Bolder! Spread the arms!
Have done with finger pointing.
Open windows even for the cold
To come whistling in, blowing the curtains:
We have looked out through glass
Long enough, my song.

Now, knowing the wind's knack,
We can make little of daring:
Has not laughter in the house corners
Spoken of it -- the blind horse:
Has not every chink whispered
How she rides biting its ears,
How she drives it in secret?

Therefore my song -- bolder!
Let in the wind! Open the windows!
Embrace the companion
That is whistling, waiting
Impatiently to receive us!
