Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree,
If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn,
Would scarcely know that we were gone.

Hope

exhalation

flight

elevation

barrier

confusion

fall

suffering

crashing

at the end

and pain – for me and for

all my descendants. Yet

there is no importance here,

since in trying

WE LIVE

When I’m alone

Envy me then,

For I have better friends

Than women and men.

I can’t forget that I’m bereft
Of all the pleasant sights they see,
Which the Piper also promised me;
For he led us, he said, to a joyous land,
Joining the town and just at hand,
Where waters gushed and fruit-trees grew,
And flowers put forth a fairer hue,
And every thing was strange and new;
The sparrows were brighter than peacocks here,
And their dogs outran our fallow deer,
And honey-bees had lost their stings,
And horses were born with eagles’ wings:
And just as I felt assured
My lame foot would be speedily cured,
The music stopped and I stood still,
And found myself outside the Hill,
Left alone against my will,
To go now limping as before,
And never hear of that country more!

“To ask for money for treating the sick is a bit like telling them, ‘your money or your life.'” -Alexandre Yersin, 1863 – 1943
