Christ and the Lord! I thirst for marvel
Now, here, as the day would start!
The life is like a book to me,
So let me die. Let me depart.
You’re wise, and sternly ‘Now be patient,
Your time’s not ripe’ you will not say.
Yourself you gave me – too much now!
I thirst at once – for every way!
I want it all: with soul of gypsy
To run to plunder with a song,
To suffer for all near an organ,
To run to war, an Amazon;
To divine stars in a black tower
The kids through shadows to lead…
That yesterday would be a legend,
That each and every day be mad!
I love the cross, the silk, the helmet,
The minute’s trace of soul of mine..
You gave me childhood – better than fiction
Now let me die at seventeen!
