Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
Drowning is not so pitiful
As the attempt to rise.
Three times, 'tis said, a sinking man
Comes up to face the skies,
And then declines forever
To that abhorred abode,
Where hope and he part company -
For he is grasped by God.
The Maker's cordial visage,
However good to see,
Is shunned, we must admit it,
Like an adversity.

    Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
    A Pit - but Heaven over it -
    And Heaven beside, and Heaven abroad;
    And yet a Pit -
    With Heaven over it.
    To stir would be to slip -
    To look would be to drop -
    To dream - to sap the Prop
    That holds my chances up.
    Ah! Pit! With Heaven over it!

    The depth is all my thought -
    I dare not ask my feet -
    'Twould start us where we sit
    So straight you'd scarce suspect
    It was a Pit - with fathoms under it
    It's Circuit just the same
    Whose Doom to whom
    'Twould start them -
    We - could tremble -
    But since we got a Bomb -
    And held it in our Bosom -
    Nay - Hold it - it is calm.
