un tempo
© 2011 by Guido Monte



(Swans - May 9, 2011)  

white home, a garden, a sound...
the doors of stained glass,
threads of memory a white bed, silence
an eye sees the sun and a petrified soul,
melting of a red moon of sirocco,
to the lethe river, forgotten by our world
même ma vue devient plus sincère,
à côté des balancelles abandonnées
et aux fleurs de crépuscule,
pour me réveiller des milions d'années en arrière,
dans la nostalgie d'un passé lointain
qui ne pourra plus retourner.

je veux me souvenir des visages que je ne connais pas,
les gouttes de pluie d'hiver sur les toits humides,
les petits cris mystérieux des moineaux,
les miracles qui ont aucun sens.



Last verses translated into French by Floriana Cusimano.
