Babelfishing Poetry: "Try (See Below)"

Hello! You well? I hope so; well and happy, and not too stressed out by the holiday season bearing down on us like a colossal steamroller. If so, why not take a little break to enjoy some Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, change the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem?

This unassuming little Neil Young ditty from 1970 has been rattling around in my head for some reason these past couple of days, so it's this week's pick. Here's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart," Babelfished (listen to song here). Enjoy.

Try (See Below)

You are not young.
You were able to.

How to complete the requirements?
Do you think this is thought
to play a range most of the time?

However, break your heart
with love only.
Please try it and check
that it is right from the start.

Yes, I'll be the only break your heart.
Does the world collapse?

I've never been a friend of mine.
He hides his head in a dream.

If there are people, they will come.
Because you can lose no more,
try (see below).
