Open , open the door,
Do not keep me waiting outside.
Respond to my call,
Look at me,
Come and greet me with open arms.
My work is done,
The evening stars have risen.
The lighted ferry has disappeared,
In the vast ocean.
Is the water-pot filled,
Both sides of the wharf clean,
Did you tie your hair,
pluck the flowers,
string the garland?
The cattle is back from the pasture,
The birds returned to their nest,
All the paths surrounding the world,
Have disappeared in the dark.
Do not keep me waiting outside,
Open , open the door!
