In the farewell silence, where we hide our losses with sad joyful longing, and where night and life are so sharp-set for reckoning, where the stars under the window are flowing like a river, I forgetto live, though there is a stone’s throw from snowy letters, carrier pigeons, flying to us from the heaven heights, fromthe hand-to-hand darkness of times, where the choral singing of lines disturbs the predawn leaf, where the words are furiously rolling from the high mountain of inspiration into my destiny, into my sleep for an encore.
