You thought the leaden winter would bring you down foever,

And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses:
For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white-lace lips.
And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise,
And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,

And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.
Her name is Aphrodite and she rides a crimson shell,
With the tales of brave Ulysses: how his naked ears were tortured

And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.
