Phoenix

Thus, this bird was let free
and in freedom it was caught
It flew into the solid dark
and the roaring fire
of wood's desire

In honest and clear thought
I wish it had never been caught
But still; hope the ashes will
Keep it safe in perishing night


Felice

Oh what small things we dwell on!
But first and first and first and more...
Oh Dio, Dio, the echo of your name
Amarezza they called it and look what
it became!

Yours the plans that shine in the mountain spring
And let the world know of comforting
