Pablo Neruda / Duy Huynh | Ode to the Happy Day / Ode al giorno felice

Let me be happy
nothing ha s happened to anybody
I am nowhere special
I am only
happy
through the four chambers
of my heart, I am strolling,
sleeping, or writing.
What canI do? I'm
happy.

Paul Verlaine | Kiss! / Bacio! Rosa malva nel giardino delle carezze..


Kiss*! Hollyhock in Love's luxuriant close!
Brisk music played on pearly little keys,
In tempo with the witching melodies
Love in the ardent heart repeating goes.
Sonorous, graceful Kiss, hail! Kiss divine!
Unequalled boon, unutterable bliss!
Man, bent o'er thine enthralling chalice, Kiss,
Grows drunken with a rapture only thine!

Jaroslav Seifert / George Grie | To be a Poet / Essere Poeta, 1983



To Be a Poet

Life taught me long ago
that music and poetry
are the most beautiful things on earth
that life can give us.
Except for love, of course.

In an old textbook
published by the Imperial Printing House
in the year of Vrchlický's death
I looked up the section on poetics
and poetic ornament.

Alda Merini / Marc Chagall | I do not need money / Io non ho bisogno di denaro..

I do not need money.
I have need of feelings
of words, words chosen wisely
of flowers called thoughts,
of roses called presences
of dreams inhabiting the trees,
of songs that make statues dance,
of stars that murmur to the ear of lovers.


I need poetry
this spell which burns the weight of words
that arouses emotions and gives new colors.

Alda Merini* (Milan, 21 March 1931 – Milan, 1 November 2009) Italian* writer and poet.
