"Here read the names of nobles who have passed
Into that realm whence they return no more;
Walmer and Gerberich, Schuey, Schreckengast,
Alberthal, Hetrich, Backenstoss, Boeshore, Pfatteicher, Batdorf,
Rieth, Theiss, Bartlemay,
And others carved on stones less permanent - I love you all!
And on this fragile day
Beneath the blue unclouded firmament
I could sink down and kiss the earth so dear,
And, grateful, bless those lives that vanished here."
