Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
Who occupies this House?
A Stranger I must judge
Since No one know His Circumstance -
'Tis well the name and age
Are writ upon the Door
Or I should fear to pause
Where not so much as Honest Dog
Approach encourages -

It seems a Curious Town -
Some Houses very old,
Some - newly raised this Afternoon,
Were I compelled to build

It should not be among
Inhabitants so still
But where the Birds assemble
And Boys were possible

Before Myself was born
'Twas settled, so they say,
A Territory for the Ghosts
And Squirrels, formerly.

Until a Pioneer, as
Settlers often do
Liking the quiet of the Place
Attracted more unto -

And from a Settlement
A Capitol has grown
Distinguished for the gravity
Of every Citizen -

The Owner of this House
A Stranger He must be -
Eternity's Acquaintances
Are mostly so - to me.

    Crisis is a Hair
    Toward which forces creep
    Past which - forces retrograde
    If it come in sleep
    To suspend the Breath
    Is the most we can
    Ignorant is it Life or Death
    Nicely balancing -

    Let an instant push
    Or an Atom press
    Or a Circle hesitate
    In Circumference

    It may jolt the Hand
    That adjusts the Hair
    That secures Eternity
    From presenting - Here.
