Original text and translations

English.png English and Latin.png Latin text

Tread lightly, she is near
under the snow,
speak gently, she can hear
the daisies grow.

Coffin-board, heavy stone,
lie on her breast,
I vex my heart alone,
she is at rest.

Peace, peace, she can’t hear
lyre or sonnet,
all my life's buried here,
heap earth upon it.
