C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
To an Impromptu of Chopin
By Gabriele D’Annunzio (1863–1938)
 
From ‘The Triumph of Death’

WHEN thou upon my breast art sleeping,
  I hear across the midnight gray—
I hear the muffled note of weeping,
  So near—so sad—so far away!
 
All night I hear the teardrops falling—        5
  Each drop by drop—my heart must weep;
I hear the falling blood-drops—lonely,
  Whilst thou dost sleep—whilst thou dost sleep.
