This life


 

Photo by JB, 2009

This life gave me your eyes so clear, light
during my winter days, a concretion
of cold, sadness and silence
that you win, that you suddenly won when we met us
 

Yes, the life gave me your lovely eyes
full of beauty like the linden smile
when it scatters its scent and the sweetness
in the warm ride to the next solstice
 

The life gave me as present your eyes
and your lips and your hands and your skin
that I touch and a shiver moves me
while my soul moans and quivers and ripples
 

This life gave me your eyes, nowadays
tired yet again stretched forward
beyond me and the world, to the horizon
of each gesture so thrown even further

    Endre Ady: Veglio i tuoi occhi

    Già con le mani di un anziano
    Nelle mie prendo la tua mano,
    Già con i miei occhi da vecchio
    I tuoi occhi li tengo d’occhio.

    Attraverso i mondi in caduta
    Come un’antica bestia inseguita
    Dall’orrore da te sono arrivato
    Ed attendo assieme a te spaventato.

    Già con le mani di un anziano
    Nelle mie prendo la tua mano,
    Già con i miei occhi da vecchio
    I tuoi occhi li tengo d’occhio.

    Non so perché, fino a quando
    Ancora per te perdurerò,
    Afferro la tua mano però
    Ed i tuoi occhi li sto vegliando.
