I remember her fluttering (cavatina)


I remember her fluttering, a bird
at the window,
twittering as if calling me to her,
a small shadow
on the ledge, finding a new kind of world
she did not know;
that she moved on the day of her death,
great pain then took away my very breath

Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
