Kovič Kajetan:

The dawn is unstoppable.

In bodies, the cold and the glow and the shadow and everything.

The promise of the world.

The anguish of eternal light.

The wonder of white flowers.

Of the deadly mingling with the unknown.

And the terror of departure,

when, their backs bare,

before the wall in ruin,

they stare into the endless morning,

alone for good.
