THE FAITHFUL,THEY ALL CAME
FROM NEAR, FROM FAR,
THEY CAME IN HONOUR OF HIS NAME,
CAME ON FOOT, BY TRAIN, BY CAR.
THEY GATHERED ALL IN LOVELY TUSCANY
TO REMEMBER THIS ONE MAN
WHO HAD ENDED HIS WORLDLY TASK TO BE NOW FREE
FOR HIS OTHERWORLDLY PLAN.
AND PLANS HE HAD AMASS,
NEVER RESTING FROM EARLY ON, AND OH,
LISTENING TO WHAT HIS GRANDDAD SAYS
TILL OLD AGE WHISPERED: "TIME FOR YOU TO GO."

WE USED TO ROAM THE PLACES WHERE HE LIVED,
EXPLORED THE MEADOWS, VINEYARDS, WOODS AND BROOKS,
ALWAYS TIME FOR YOUTHFUL DRIFT,
AND TIME FOR CARING 'BOUT OUR PERSONAL LOOKS.
SO AFTER BEING TRAINED FOR THE THINGS TO COME
I REMEMBER THIS ONE PHOTOGRAPH OF A UNIFORMED MAN
DOING SERVICE FOR THE FATHERLAND WHILE SOME
DODGED THAT PERIOD AND RAN.

WHEN OUR CONTACTS BECAME LOOSE
I HAD TO LISTEN TO HIS MOTHER'S WORDS,
LIKE "HAMBURG", "BERLIN", SO MANY OTHER PLACES HE DID PERUSE,
NO PLACES MOSTLY OF SINGING BIRDS.
BUT THEN HE HAD HIS BIGGEST PLAN,
BUILD A HOME FROM BOTTOM UP TO TOP;
AND IT HELPED TO BE A FAMILY MAN:
FOUR HANDS WILL BE GOOD FOR AVOIDING A FLOP.
HIS ITALIAN YEARS HAVE GROWN INTO A LEGEND,
TOO MUCH TO TELL,
ALL THOSE FAITHFULL THAT HAVE VISITED, PAID RENT
FOR THEIR STAYS WILL REMEMBER WHEN THEY HEAR THE KNELL
RINGING FOR THIS MAN WHO TRIED SO WELL.

HE LOVED LIFE, YOU FOLLOWERS, AND NEVER CEASE,
AFTER HAVING PUT HIS ASHES INTO ITALIAN GROUND
TO WISH FOR HIM A LONG AND COMFORTABLE REST IN PEACE,
SOMETHING HE HAD RARELY FOUND.

Your cousin Ludwig
