The purple wistaria grows upward, seeking the stars.
Sweet is its perfume, strangely sweet;
And silver are its leaves, fairy leaves.

I walk in the moonlight near the purple wistaria which grows upward, toward the
stars.
I walk in the moonlight near the strange, sweet flower that I love so.

Oh, the mystery of night is in my blood!
And the charm of the moonlight is in my heart!
And the fragrance of the flower thrills thru my soul!
Oh, I am mad with strange and passionate joy!

Flower that I love so, flower that grows upward, seeking the stars;
Flower with the strange sweet perfume and the silver fairy leaves;
Why do you thrill me with such strange and passionate joy?
Why do you madden me with ecstasy divine?

Flower that I love so, your beauty vibrates thru my soul forever—
Oh, help me upward, for I, too, am seeking the stars!
