Whenever we meet, we gaze at each other for a long time
Whenever we meet, we gaze at each other for a long time…
When unexpectedly we meet on the path
that leads through the wood or vineyard, and also
when in the orchard, through the grass overfilled
with star-shaped dandelions, she approaches
me naked. With sprightly movements. Without
a sound, as if walking on toes. In her
beautiful eyes, which hide the coolness
of the deepest fountain, I see every time my
own eyes, and in them two burning suns.
I don’t know if she feels my desire,
as I feel hers, that we should at least once
engage in a passionate kiss… Whenever we meet,
we gaze at each other for a long time… That’s how
it always ends, my meeting with the snake.
