102. Night Song at Amalfi
 
I ASKED the heaven of stars 
  What I should give my love— 
It answered me with silence, 
  Silence above. 
  
I asked the darkened sea         5
  Down where the fishes go— 
It answered me with silence, 
  Silence below. 
  
Oh, I could give him weeping, 
  Or I could give him song—  10
But how can I give silence 
  My whole life long?
