Remus and Romulus went up a hill...

Основатели

Remus and Romulus went up a hill,
The hill was mute and wild.
Romulus said "Here will be the City",
Remus added "that shines"

Romulus said "The grace of the stars
Blessed our past we forgot".
Remus said: "What passed is the past,
The glorious future we've got".

"Here'll be the Circus", the first brother
Said, "and our house, open to all".
"Let's move the tombs," said then another
"Closer to our new home".

The Magic Violin

Pretty boy, / you are so merry / and your smile's - so light, so sunny. / Don't you ask me for this passion / that is poison to the worlds. / You don't know, don't know how dreadful / is this Magic Violin, sonny, / And how gloomy is the horror / of the one who strikes the ...

Comfort

He that has been burried / Hears a glorious chime, / Smells the whitest lilies / In his dream beyond time. / / He that in his grave lies / Sees an endless light / As the wings of Seraphs / Shed their snow-flakes bright. / / You are on your death-bed / And your hands are cold....

Today, I can see that your glance is especially sad, / And your hands are especially frail and your hair especially a mess. / There, there now... Just listen... far, far away, on Lake Chad / Roams a proud and graceful giraffe... / / An exquisite figure and a leisurely life are his boon / ...
