since feeling is first / intrucat sentimentul este primul


since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all the flowers. Don’t cry
– the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids’ flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life’s not a paragraph

and death i think is no parenthesis


intrucat sentimentul este primul


intrucat sentimentul este primul
care da vreo atentie
sintaxei lucrurilor
nu te voi saruta deplin nicicand:

pe deplin sa fii un naiv
cand Primavara este in Lume

sangele meu accepta,
si sarutarile sunt o soarta mai buna
decat intelepciunea
doamna jur pe toate florile. Nu plange
-cel mai bun gest al creierului meu este mai putin decat
tremurul pleoapele tale care spune

suntem unul pentru altul: atunci
razi, arcuieste-te in bratele mele
caci viata nu-i un paragraf

si moartea cred nu-i o paranteza


Maria Magdalena
