For at the window of my houseI looked out through my lattice,And I saw among the naive,And discerned among the youthsA young man lacking sense,Passing through the street near her corner;And he takes the way to her house,In the twilight, in the evening,In the middle of the night and in the darkness.And behold, a woman comes to meet him,Dressed as a harlot and cunning of hea...
