Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
A solemn thing - it was - I said -
A woman - white - to be -
And wear - if God should count me fit -
Her blameless mystery -
A hallowed thing - to drop a life
Into the purple well -
Too plummetless - that it return -
Eternity - until -

I pondered how the bliss would look -
And would it feel as big -
When I could take it in my hand -
As glimmering - seen - through fog -

And then - the size of this "small" life -
The Sages - call it small -
Swelled - like Horizons - in my vest -
And I sneered - softly - "small"!

    One Life of so much Consequence!
    Yet I - for it - would pay -
    My Soul's entire income -
    In ceaseless - salary -
    One Pearl - to me - so signal -
    That I would instant dive -
    Although - I knew - to take it -
    Would cost me - just a life!

    The Sea is full - I know it!
    That - does not blur my Gem!
    It burns - distinct from all the row -
    Intact - in Diadem!

    The life is thick - I know it!
    Yet - not so dense a crowd -
    But Monarchs - are perceptible -
    Far down the dustiest Road!
