Oh My Castle In The Wind

By Jogos Florais

Oh my castles in the wind
Which such bane to me you caused
How have I had you dissolved!

Towering castles I assembled,
Fortune was all the while still
And I said: Lost wishes, disremembered,
you shall fall and greatly you will!
But, oh! Poor understanding!
Where were you then sojourned
That to my aid you did not return?

So hastily you left me,
Left was all the hope;
This was not the change of time,
But it was the death of mine.
Castles of no substance,
how much have you promised me,
how much to me have you crumbled!
