Sötét egünkre lassan színezüst koszorút fon a súlyos fáklyafüst s felrebbenő madár fenn sírdogál! A lélek oly ijedt és lebbenő, akár a hűs, könnyüszárnyu felleg, melyre forró csillagok lehelnek. A attempt pihen vermében hallgatag, rögök nyugalmas sorsát éli lenn, szétoszlik, szomjas gyökér felissza s zöld lobogással tér újra vissza, törvény szerint! s oly szörnyü, szörnyü így, mi egy világ volt, kétfelé kering! vagy bölcs talán? a holttest tudja itt.

ELÉGIA JUHÁSZ GYULA HALÁLÁRA Öt évig laktam városodban költő, s nem láttalak sosem. Négy fal között, csomós sötétben éltél távol és nem érdekelt e földi tartomány s a folyton mást dajkáló diadal; immár a rémes sár ölében fekszel, esőtől nedves deszkaszál takar. Régóta már csak éjjel, ablakodból néztél az égre és a fellegek futása ért a szívedig talán; tudom, hogy évek óta nem beszéltél, mint hallgató barát, ki megfogadta; oly némán éltél és szakállasan, ahogy kegyetlen szárán él a barka. Tavasz van és a fényes mély Tisza tovább folyik, s árad tovább a fénytelen nyomor tanyáidon; nem változott mióta földbetettek semmisem: akárha élnél, úgy vonul a felleg s fehér virágban álló fák felől az illatok éjente útrakelnek.
