I. THE DECEASED
Here rests, her mouth now full of earth,
she who it was once bore me;
she who forever since my birth
has sought but to destroy me.
And now her body must decay
In me she has returned to stay.
– And her I cannot slay. –
II. SECOND VOICE
You are of her: regard the stone:
The very names both of you own.
Accept your part. – I gaze on you.
Till she in peace will sleep anew.
Till you in peace will stand here too.
