My Joker's love is on the far side.
The rivers are between our bodies;
The waters are mighty at flood-time,
A crocodile waits in the shallows.
I enter the water and brave the waves,
My heart is strong on the deep;
The crocodile seems like a mouse to me,
The flood as land to my feet.
It is his love that gives me strength,
It makes a water-spell for me;
I gaze at my heart's desire,
As he stands facing me!
My Joker has come, my heart exults,
My arms spread out to embrace him;
My heart bounds in its place,
Like the red fish in its pond.
O my love, be mine forever,
Now that my Joker has come!
