Example text

Do you fear him too? FIRST. No, he won’t interfere with us. The crowd is too petty to obey the will of a titan. The King on the Square 51 SECOND. Who’s the other one? FIRST. The other one? His daughter. SECOND. That’s hilarious! You’re afraid of a woman? Your voice trembled! FIRST. Don’t laugh. I’m not afraid of good sense, or will, or labor, or coarse masculine strength. But I am afraid of a reckless fantasy, of nonsense, of what is sometimes called the lofty dream. SECOND. You’re afraid of religion, poetry?

GIRL. Lift up your gaze to the heavens. The sunny day will alleviate all of your sorrow. YOUTH. Clouds are swimming and swimming eternally. They drop their white towers down into the seas. GIRL. You are sad. Look into my eyes. Read the joy of my meeting with you. YOUTH. I see that your eyes have turned blue. Towards nightfall your youth will draw you on. GIRL. Let’s be happy! Let’s be happy! The seas are singing! I can hear the ships coming from far, far away. YOUTH. I can hear the distant waves murmur.

Unfaithful one, where are you? A long chain Of street lamps stretches through the sleepy streets, And the lovers go, pair by pair, Warmed by their love’s light. Where are you? Why can’t we, after the last pair, Step into the circle meant for us? I will go and strum my sad guitar Under the window, where you dance in your friends’ chorus! I will rouge my face, so pale and moon-like, Draw my brows and glue a mustache on. Do you hear my poor heart, Columbine, Draw out, draw out its melancholy song?
