Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
A little East of Jordan,
Evangelists record,
A Gymnast and an Angel
Did wrestle long and hard -
Till morning touching mountain -
And Jacob, waxing strong,
The Angel begged permission
To Breakfast - to return -

Not so, said cunning Jacob!
"I will not let thee go
Except thou bless me" - Stranger!
The which acceded to -

Light swung the silver fleeces
"Peniel" Hills beyond,
And the bewildered Gymnast
Found he had worsted God!

    Delayed till she had ceased to know -
    Delayed till in it's vest of snow
    Her loving bosom lay -
    An hour behind the fleeting breath -
    Later by just an hour than Death -
    Oh lagging Yesterday!
    Could she have guessed that it w'd be -
    Could but a crier of the joy
    Have climbed the distant hill -
    Had not the bliss so slow a pace
    Who knows but this surrendered face
    Were undefeated still?

    Oh if there may departing be
    Any forgot by Victory
    In her imperial round -
    Show them this meek apparreled thing
    That could not stop to be a king -
    Doubtful if it be crowned.
