come luce di sole dietro una foglia
accarezzi ma non ti fermi
tocchi senza sostare
fugace il tuo calore
seduce senza scaldare
conduci nell’incanto colorato di infinito
e poi ti dissolvi come profumo intenso di giglio
presto avvertito presto svanito
più reale di te il tuo sogno
sognato ancora e ancora
e ancora
più concreta di te la tua immagine
impressa sottopelle
sapore mai assaggiato
vago e vero insieme

amore solo contemplato
amore guardato
amore indovinato
amore imbarazzato
amore incapace e impotente
amore sciolto di dolcezza
amore mai posseduto
(come se si potesse possedere il vento)

Manuel Oliveira

you slide
like sun light behind a leaf
caressing without stopping
touching without standing
fast your heat
seducing without warming
you lead in the enchanting, colorful never-ending
then dispel as intense scent of a lily
soon perceived soon vanished
more real than you the dream of you
dreamt again and again
and again
more sound than you the image of you
printed under my skin
never tasted flavor
together vague and real

love, just contemplated love
love, just looked at love
love, guessed love
embarrassed love
unable and powerless love
love melted in sweetness
never owned love
(as if wind could be owned)

Manuel Oliveira
