Lacas (Stefan Augustin Doinas-
din Volumul de Poezii “Semintia lui Laokoon”)

Un templu. Sus. In vale curge Tibrul.
Lumina devasteaza echilibrul 
altarelor. Statuile surad,
ciuntite, dezvelind un suflet hid.
Intarzie pe trepte istovite
o umbra: a pastorului de vite.
Si mugete inchise ca-n ocol
impung printre coloane cerul gol.

iar in adancuri, ignornandu-si haina
de aparente vii, sta moarta Taina.
