    دست به فولدرت نزدم مگر آنکه پاره شدم در شبهای بسیار سخت تو آهنگ طلوع سپیده دم من بودی از ریش هایت جویباری است تا ابدیت و فرشتگان بر هر چپ و راستی که زدی یک بوسه بر دست هایت زدند جهان بدون نغمه های تو قطعا مکان امنی برای شب زنده داران و عن در دلان نیست. هماره جاودانه و یک لحظه از مضرابت خالی مباد جهان.
