It is a gift to die in May—

An easy task to dig a grave,

And nightingales will sing their song

A funerals’ dismal songs and sounds,

And rain that comes instead of tears

Dissolves the memories’ regret.

A cross is a redundant mark

Among a grove of weary birch.

With irrepresible thirst for life,

The sun has yet to burn the grass,

And every thing is animate.

To stay behind in vernal dew.

And though I could not do it all,

There are no doubts where none remain…

It is a gift, to die in May…
