The day will come, final­ly, the time is approa­ching
when we will see eter­ni­ty with other eyes
(I myself had to cross this river twice
    to get this far)
even the fire of which we were made
slow­ly died
(from the ashes that were dis­per­sed far away
I now offer you this poem)
and then it actual­ly hap­pe­ned : we light­ly cros­sed
    to the dark far­ther shore
where eve­ryone, even the gods, were present.
