Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
Like Eyes that looked on Wastes -
Incredulous of Ought
But Blank - and steady Wilderness -
Diversified by Night -
Just Infinites of Nought -
As far as it could see -
So looked the face I looked upon -
So looked itself - on Me -

I offered it no Help -
Because the Cause was Mine -
The Misery a Compact
As hopeless - as divine -

Neither - would be absolved -
Neither would be a Queen
Without the Other - Therefore -
We perish - tho' We reign.

    Sweet - safe - Houses -
    Glad - gay - Houses -
    Sealed so stately tight -
    Lids of Steel - on Lids of Marble -
    Locking Barefeet out -
    Brooks of Plush - in Banks of Satin
    Not so softly fall
    As the laughter - and the whisper -
    From their People Pearl -

    No Bald Death - affront their Parlors -
    No Bold Sickness come
    To deface their stately Treasures -
    Anguish - and the Tomb -

    Hum by - in muffled Coaches -
    Lest they - wonder Why -
    Any - for the Press of Smiling -
    Interrupt - to die -.

      Triumph - may be of several kinds -
      There's Triumph in the Room
      When that Old Imperator - Death -
      By Faith - be overcome -
      There's Triumph of the finer mind
      When Truth - affronted long -
      Advance unmoved - to Her Supreme -
      Her God - Her only Throng -

      A Triumph - when Temptation's Bribe
      Be slowly handed back -
      One eye upon the Heaven renounced -
      And One - upon the Rack -

      Severer Triumph - by Himself
      Experienced - who pass
      Acquitted - from that Naked Bar -
      Jehovah's Countenance.
