English Translation of 'The Deserted Girl's Lament'

With quivering limbs
And bowed head I weep,
And restlessly turn on
My lonely sleeping-mat
Once fondly I dreamed
Your love ne'er would wane.
Ah me! it is dead;
But mine ceaselessly burns.
Swamp-stains on the feet
Are washed clean in the stream,
But the heart-stains of love
For ever remain.
