Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
The Day that I was crowned
Was like the other Days -
Until the Coronation came -
And then - 'twas Otherwise -
As Carbon in the Coal
And Carbon in the Gem
Are One - and yet the former
Were dull for Diadem -

I rose, and all was plain -
But when the Day declined
Myself and It, in Majesty
Were equally - adorned -

The Grace that I - was chose -
To Me - surpassed the Crown
That was the Witness for the Grace -
'Twas even that 'twas Mine.

    From Cocoon forth a Butterfly
    As Lady from her Door
    Emerged - a Summer Afternoon -
    Repairing Everywhere -
    Without Design - that I could trace
    Except to stray abroad
    On Miscellaneous Enterprise
    The Clovers - understood -

    Her pretty Parasol be seen
    Contracting in a Field
    Where Men made Hay -
    Then struggling hard
    With an opposing Cloud -

    Where Parties - Phantom as Herself -
    To Nowhere - seemed to go
    In purposeless Circumference -
    As 'twere a Tropic Show -

    And notwithstanding Bee - that worked -
    And Flower - that zealous blew -
    This Audience of Idleness
    Disdained them, from the Sky -

    Till Sundown crept - a steady Tide -
    And Men that made the Hay -
    And Afternoon - and Butterfly -
    Extinguished - in the Sea.

      The Sun - just touched the Morning -
      The Morning - Happy thing -
      Supposed that He had come to dwell -
      And Life would all be Spring!
      She felt herself supreme -
      A Raised - Ethereal Thing!
      Henceforth - for Her - What Holiday!
      Meanwhile - Her wheeling King -
      Trailed - slow - along the Orchards -
      His haughty - spangled Hems -
      Leaving a new necessity!
      The want of Diadems!

      The Morning - fluttered - staggered -
      Felt feebly - for Her Crown -
      Her unanointed forehead -
      Henceforth - Her only One!
