I think this tajnis is a poem of mourning for a musician friend of the poet.

Vidal Benveniste (15th century)
Lyre and Harp

Lyre and harp, O shatter, you players / let sound a wail of fright
For fled is the light of every tune / for you songs shall be as the night.

וידאל בנבנשת
כינור ונבל נפצו

כִּנּוֹר וְנֵבֵל נַפְּצוּ / נוֹגְנִים וְהַשְׁמִיעוּ יְלֵיל
כִּי נָס מְאוֹר כָּל הַזְּמִיר / הַשִּׁיר יְהִי לָכֶם כְּלֵיל


Kinór ve-neivéil naptzú / nogním ve-hashmíʕú yeléil
Ki nas me’ór kol ha-zamír / ha-shír yehí lakhém ke-léil
