Love stumbled him down

Isurumuniya-Lovers- 2
It’s tragic when,
From mountain height,
Pride stumbles men down,
Anger stumbles them down,
Lust stumbles men down,
Though stars they are bright,
From mountain height
Into gutters so rotten.

How tragic should
It be when love,
Love stumbles men down,
Love stumbles them down,
From mountain height
To stinking gutters?

From mountain height
Love stumbled one down,
Love stumbled him down,
A star though he was so bright,
Into a gutter deep down
Since a princess he found,
A princess worm so bright
In that gutter deep down.
