Do you love?
Then you are wretched:
you have been hitched
to a plow, the ground
is hard and dry. It has
not rained for forty days
and nights. Now pull,
sweat and tears
will make the soil
fertile. Up will spring
the wheat of your bitter contribution.
Eat with horror
and increase of strength.
Pride returns
in the knowledge of your achievement.
It is possible to be happy.
