My attempt at a translation:
The wheel of life stopped on the branch; someone had left it leafless.
Love was not consumed by smoke; how golden it became!
Bright as bright can be, the house caught fire.
The fireplace and fourteen pieces of door-frame all rose up.
Life had stopped on the branch when it was cast.
The leafless one let the one who flew away escape.
The house caught fire...
