A house of stone and linen curtains

tinted by rays of light and dust.

The ocean, stretching to the horizon,

peers through the window.

Inside the house, a virginal woman;

her ashen hair, teased by winds from the high seas,

dances with the evening.

On the table,

her old, well-folded trousseau

catches her eye

just as the night birds start to sing.
