I gave my heart so easily away,
Unspoiled, undone, unfinished.
It smashed itself against my ribs
To millions of bits that shone -
A gory rainbow in a lifeless fountain.
When shades, and suns are cached
Behind malicious Turols, so bent upon revenge;
Obstreperous in bloodstained marble,
A deathly moan across the sallow lips.
I breathed and heard it, and am poisoned -
Over the dizzy waters of the Danube
My shivering reluctance and regret.
