I am eager for the return of the swallows in spring (we are now in the midst of the South African winter); I want them to hear the “To a Swallow” poem completed in their absence.

I have chosen the final variation quicker than expected. Where I can, I prefer to preserve the original concept of a poem; with this precept in mind, the choice was obvious. “Quietude” then is complete!
