              First Movement
              Thin-voiced, nasal pipes
              Drawing sound out and out
              Until it is a screeching1 thread,
              Sharp and cutting, sharp and cutting,
              It hurts.
              Bump!  Bump!  Tong-ti-bump!
              There are drums here,
              And wooden shoes beating the round, grey stones
              Of the market-place.
              Sabots slapping the worn, old stones,
              And a shaking and cracking of dancing bones;
              Clumsy and hard they are,
              And uneven,
              Losing half a beat
              Because the stones are slippery.
              Bump-e-ty-tong!  Whee-e-e!  Tong!
              The thin Spring leaves
              Shake to the banging of shoes.
              Shoes beat, slap,
              Shuffle2, rap,
              And the nasal pipes squeal3 with their pigs' voices,
              Little pigs' voices
              Weaving among the dancers,
              A fine white thread
              Linking up the dancers.
              Bang!  Bump!  Tong!
              Delirium flapping its thigh-bones;
              Red, blue, yellow,
              Drunkenness steaming in colours;
              Red, yellow, blue,
              Colours and flesh weaving together,
              In and out, with the dance,
              Coarse stuffs and hot flesh weaving together.
              Pigs' cries white and tenuous,
              White and painful,
              White and --

              Second Movement
              Pale violin music whiffs across the moon,
              A pale smoke of violin music blows over the moon,
              Cherry petals4 fall and flutter,
              And the white Pierrot,
              Wreathed in the smoke of the violins,
              Splashed with cherry petals falling, falling,
              Claws a grave for himself in the fresh earth
              With his finger-nails.

              Third Movement
              An organ growls5 in the heavy roof-groins of a church,
              It wheezes6 and coughs.
              The nave7 is blue with incense,
              Writhing, twisting,
              Snaking over the heads of the chanting priests.
              `Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine';
              The priests whine8 their bastard9 Latin
              And the censers swing and click.
              The priests walk endlessly
              Round and round,
              Droning their Latin
              Off the key.
              The organ crashes out in a flaring10 chord,
              And the priests hitch11 their chant up half a tone.
              `Dies illa, dies irae,
              Calamitatis et miseriae,
              Dies magna et amara valde.'
              A wind rattles12 the leaded windows.
              The little pear-shaped candle flames leap and flutter,
              `Dies illa, dies irae;'
              The swaying smoke drifts over the altar,
              `Calamitatis et miseriae;'
              The shuffling13 priests sprinkle holy water,
              `Dies magna et amara valde;'
              And there is a stark14 stillness in the midst of them
              Stretched upon a bier.
              His ears are stone to the organ,
              His eyes are flint to the candles,
              His body is ice to the water.
              Chant, priests,
              Whine, shuffle, genuflect,
              He will always be as rigid15 as he is now
              Until he crumbles16 away in a dust heap.
              `Lacrymosa dies illa,
              Qua resurget ex favilla
              Judicandus homo reus.'
              Above the grey pillars the roof is in darkness.
