Vincenzo Bruno (1926-2007)















Farewell
Emily Dickinson

Tie the Strings to my Life, My Lord,
Then I am ready to go!
Just a look at the Horses --
Rapid! That will do!

Put me in on the firmest side --
So I shall never fall --
For we must ride to the Judgment --
And it's partly down Hill --

But never I mind the steepest --
And never I mind the Sea --
Held fast in Everlasting Race --
By my own Choice and Thee --

Goodbye to the Life I used to live --
And the World I used to know --
And kiss the Hills for me, just once --
Then - I am ready to go!
