Suddenly a sweet smell

Lightened my heart

With a pleasant air:

But I was not in a flower garden

In full bloom,

And it was not springtime:


Then I heard my soul whisper,

As if saying:

"Surely the one

           who knows your sorrows

Was passing

Through the dark corridors

                         of your memory."
