UNKNOWN FROM THAT DAY
Your alluring body and its beautiful fields,
the waves of the sea drenched in the moonlight,
the silent skyhave you seen, how
all are aroused in the enchanting silence
in the deep embrace of its natural passion ?
You have only heard the beatings of my heart,
its soaring ascendancy, the thirsty stir within
as if pearls reflected on the waves of the sea
as if limitless scattered images of the moon.
That day also revealed the first notorious morning
and its sky, impregnated with coloured dreams
adorned with spontaneous pictures of countless flowers.
Unknown from that day : how silently
does Spring come sharpening the arrow
and raining the fire of shephali,
all seasons have gathered in your body
to set the Spring aflame,
