Gnomic Verses
The sword sung on the barren heath,
The sickle in the fruitful field:
The sword he sung a song of death,
But could not make the sickle yield.

Traduzione italiana
LA SPADA CANTAVA SULLA TERRA STERILE

La spada cantava sulla terra sterile,
La falce nei campi fecondi:
Con la spada cantava una canzone di morte
ma la falce non dava nessun raccolto.
