The Serpent Hisses Where the Sweet Birds Sing

from by Corbad



Let the day perish wherein I was born,
and the night in which it was said,
"There is a man-child conceived."

Let that day be darkness;
let not God regard it from above,
neither let the light shine on it.
Let that night be solitary,
let no joyful voice come therein.

Why died I not from the womb?
Why did I not give up the ghost
when I came out of the belly? For
now should I have lain still and been
quiet. I should have slept.
Then had I been at rest!
