"Above the roof the sky is. . ."

Above the roof the sky is
So blue, so calm!
Above the roof the tree is
Waving its palms.

In the sky we see the bell
Gently ringing
In the tree we see a bird
Lamenting, singing.

My God, my God, life is
Simple and tranquil there.
Then this peaceful rumor
Comes from the town.

O you, what have you done
Constantly weeping there
Say, what did you do in your youth
O you there?
