In Fluntern Cemetery/Philip McDonagh
Geboren Dublin; Zürich gestorben. So
Narrates a simple gravestone. Some blackbirds,
A squirrel sudden on the frozen snow,
An emptiness that greets you in those words.
Onwards the blue tram climbed that took me there
And higher; to one who had his eyrie dreamed
Above the Zrichsee, and breathed this air,
