Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
I had no Cause to be awake -
My Best - was gone to sleep -
And Morn a new politeness took -
And failed to wake them up -
But called the others - clear -
And passed their Curtains by -
Sweet Morning - When I oversleep -
Knock - Recollect - to Me -

I looked at Sunrise - Once -
And then I looked at Them -
And wishfulness in me arose -
For Circumstance the same -

'Twas such an Ample Peace -
It could not hold a Sigh -
'Twas Sabbath - with the Bells divorced -
'Twas Sunset - all the Day -

So choosing but a Gown -
And taking but a Prayer -
The only Raiment I should need -
I struggled - and was There.

    'Tis true - They shut me in the Cold -
    But then - Themselves were warm
    And could not know the feeling 'twas -
    Forget it - Lord - of Them -
    Let not my Witness hinder Them
    In Heavenly esteem -
    No Paradise could be - Conferred
    Through Their beloved Blame -

    The Harm They did - was short - And since
    Myself - who bore it - do -
    Forgive Them - Even as Myself -
    Or else - forgive not me.
