and her yearnings for him are only answered by silence.)

El hachoresh laila laila hi holechet
uvamishol nitzevet hi badad...
veruach leil meishir aleha shir shalechet
vehi amda dumam, dumam.
Uvachoresh, bachatzot, hu ba adeha
umimula mitzav hu bamishol...
ve'et liba hi lo mageshet al yadeha
vehu omed dumam, dumam.
