In smoel dat graasje mist, gefoel,
In haatlik, hurd, suksesfol smoel,
In smoelwurk dêr’t in stien
Him hiel fertroud by fiele soe
As oft er it al tiden koe -
Foar ’t earst no gearbruid - ien.
A face devoid of love or grace,
A hateful, hard, successful face,
A face with which a stone
Would feel as thoroughly at ease
As were they old acquaintances -
First time together thrown.
