«Si l’altra nit jo cavalcava al ras», by J. V. Foix, from Onze Nadals i un Cap d’Any, 1960.

Si l’altra nit jo cavalcava al ras
Com qui torna i se’n va, i esquiva el mas,
Pertot i enlloc sentia corn i esquella;
Sona que tunc tan tunc que tocaràs,
Vénen de lluny, sense brida ni sella,
Com qui torna i se’n va, i esquiva el mas.

Here you can read the whole poem.
