Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
How dare the robins sing,
When men and women hear
Who since they went to their account
Have settled with the year! -
Paid all that life had earned
In one consummate bill.
And now, what life or death can do
Is immaterial.
Insulting is the sun
To him whose mortal light
Beguiled of immortality
Bequeath him to the night.
Extinct be every hum
In deference to him
Whose garden wrestled with the dew,
At daybreak overcome!

    Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
    High from the earth I heard a bird;
    He trod upon the trees
    As he esteemed them trifles,
    And then he spied a breeze,
    And situated softly
    Upon a pile of wind
    Which in a perturbation
    Nature had left behind.
    A joyous going fellow
    I gathered from his talk
    Which both of benediction
    And badinage partook
    Without apparent burden.
    I subsequently learned
    He was the faithful father
    Of a dependent brood.
    And this untoward transport
    His remedy for care, -
    A contrast to our respites.
    How different we are!
