"Why," you ask "Has Not the Servian Perished?"
by Zmai Iovan Iovanovich, translated by Nikola Tesla and Robert Underwood Johnson
" WHY," YOU ASK " HAS NOT THE SERVIAN PERISHED ? "

fragment from the " giuliche " (" jewels ")

" Why," you ask, " has not the Servian perished,
    Such calamities about him throng ? "
With the sword alike the lyre he cherished :
    He is saved by Song!
