How the Waters closed above Him

Language: English

How the Waters closed above Him
We shall never know --
How He stretched His Anguish to us
That -- is covered too --

Spreads the Pond Her Base of Lilies
Bold above the Boy
Whose unclaimed Hat and Jacket
Sum the History --

Comment les Eaux se sont fermées sur Lui

Language: French (Français) after the English

Comment les Eaux se sont fermées sur Lui
Nous ne le saurons jamais --
Comment Il a étendu Son anxiété sur nous
Cela -- est aussi dissimulé --

La mare étend Sa couverture de Nénuphars
Fièrement au-dessus du Garçon
Dont le Chapeau et la Veste non réclamés
Racontent l'Histoire --
