Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
She lay as if at play
Her life had leaped away -
Intending to return -
But not so soon -
Her merry Arms, half dropt -
As if for lull of sport -
An instant had forgot -
The Trick to start -

Her dancing Eyes - ajar -
As if their Owner were
Still sparkling through
For fun - at you -

Her Morning at the door -
Devising, I am sure -
To force her sleep -
So light - so deep.

    How sick - to wait - in any place - but thine -
    I knew last night - when someone tried to twine -
    Thinking - perhaps - that I looked tired - or alone -
    Or breaking - almost - with unspoken pain -
    And I turned - ducal -
    That right - was thine -
    One port - suffices - for a Brig - like mine -

    Our's be the tossing - wild though the sea -
    Rather than a Mooring - unshared by thee.
    Our's be the Cargo - unladen - here -
    Rather than the "spicy isles"
    And thou - not there.

      If any sink, assure that this, now standing -
      Failed like Themselves - and conscious that it rose -
      Grew by the Fact, and not the Understanding
      How Weakness passed - or Force - arose -
      Tell that the Worst, is easy in a Moment -
      Dread, but the Whizzing, before the Ball -
      When the Ball enters, enters Silence -
      Dying - annuls the power to kill.
