Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
This Chasm, Sweet, upon my life
I mention it to you,
When Sunrise through a fissure drop
The Day must follow too.
If we demur, it's gaping sides
Disclose as 'twere a Tomb
Ourself am lying straight wherein
The Favorite of Doom -

When it has just contained a Life
Then, Darling, it will close
And yet so bolder every Day
So turbulent it grows

I'm tempted half to stitch it up
With a remaining Breath
I should not miss in yielding, though
To Him, it would be Death -

And so I bear it big about
My Burial - before
A Life quite ready to depart
Can harass me no more.

    Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
    What mystery pervades a well!
    That water lives so far -
    A neighbor from another world
    Residing in a jar
    Whose limit none have ever seen,
    But just his lid of glass -
    Like looking every time you please
    In an abyss's face!

    The grass does not appear afraid,
    I often wonder he
    Can stand so close and look so bold
    At what is awe to me.

    Related somehow they may be,
    The sedge stands next the sea
    Where he is floorless
    And does no timidity betray -

    But nature is a stranger yet;
    The ones that cite her most
    Have never passed her haunted house,
    Nor simplified her ghost.

    To pity those that know her not
    Is helped by the regret
    That those who know her, know her less
    The nearer her they get.
