untitled (poem)

How I wish I wouldn’t lose you in the fray

How I wish your first most sacred caress

How I would steal you sleeping

How I wish your day would come

How I would like to go through the summer

how I would like your white skin and the snow

How I make you my object and my dream

if from sleep I can only awake you

Maria Novella dei Carraresi (Italy, 1956-) from Poesie e Canzoni, 2014 (songs and poems collection in Italian, French and English), translated from Italian by #slowwords
