Quando, presso l’alba, uscì la luna e si posò sul pavimento della loggia, sulla pompa delle dracene e delle azalee che nessuno aveva pensato a rimuovere, ella parve cercar là dentro, col suo sorriso voluttuoso, ciò che non si trovava ancora, quella notte, nel Palazzo, ma che la vicenda delle cose umane vi ha quindi portato: degli altri occhi da empir di chimere, degli altri cuori da muovere alla passione, invece di quelli che se n’erano appena liberati per sempre.”
Fogazzaro Antonio
