Scritta da: Silvana Stremiz
Tell as a Marksman - were forgotten
Tell - this Day endures
Ruddy as that Coeval Apple
The Tradition bears -
Fresh as Mankind that humble story
While a statelier Tale
Grown in the Repetition hoary
Scarcely would prevail -

Tell had a son - The ones that knew it
Need not linger here -
Those who did not to Human nature
Will subscribe a Tear -

Tell would not bare his Head
In Presence
Of the Ducal Hat -
Threatened for that with Death - by Gessler -
Tyranny bethought

Make of his only Boy a Target
That surpasses Death -
Stolid to Love's supreme entreaty
Not forsook of Faith -

Mercy of the Almighty begging -
Tell his Arrow sent -
God it is said replies in Person
When the Cry is meant.

    What did They do since I saw Them?
    Were They industrious?
    So many questions to put Them
    Have I the Eagerness
    That could I snatch Their Faces
    That could Their lips reply
    Not till the last was answered
    Should They start for the Sky -

    Not if the Just suspect Me
    And offer a Reward
    Would I restore my Booty
    To that Bold Person, God,

    Not if Their Party were waiting,
    Not if to talk with Me
    Were to Them now, Homesickness
    After Eternity.
