Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
There's something quieter than sleep
Within this inner room!
It wears a sprig upon it's breast -
And will not tell it's name.
Some touch it, and some kiss it -
Some chafe it's idle hand -
It has a simple gravity
I do not understand!

I would not weep if I were they -
How rude in one to sob!
Might scare the quiet fairy
Back to her native wood!

While simple-hearted neighbors
Chat of the "Early dead" -
We - prone to periphrasis,
Remark that Birds have fled!

    Could live - did live -
    Could die - did die -
    Could smile upon the whole
    Through faith in one he met not -
    To introduce his soul -
    Could go from scene familiar
    To an untraversed spot -
    Could contemplate the journey
    With unpuzzled heart -

    Such trust had one among us -
    Among us not today -
    We who saw the launching
    Never sailed the Bay.
