and so i repress myself

 

 

And so I repress myself, and swallow the call-note of depth-dark sobbing. (leishman)
And so I restrain myself and swallow the luring call of dark sobbing. (macintyre)
So I withhold myself and keep back the lure of my dark sobbing. (garmey/wilson)
And so I restrain myself and suppress the luring call with somber sobs. (boney)
So I control myself and choke back the lure of my dark cry. (poulin)
And since that’s the case I choke back my own dark bird-call, my sobbing. (young)
So I hold myself back and swallow the call-note of my dark sobbing. (mitchell)
And so I contain myself; choke back the appealing child’s cry of my innermost part. (gass)
And so I master myself and hold back the appealing outcry of my childhood heart.(gass)
