Rainer Maria Rilke / Auguste Rodin | Love Song, 1907

Auguste Rodin🎨 - Fugit Amor, 1881

How shall I hold my soul and yet not touch
It with your own? How shall I ever place
It clear of you on anything beyond?
Oh gladly I would stow it next to such
Things in the darkness as are never found
Down in an alien and silent space
That does not resonate when you resound.

Hermann Hesse / J. W. Waterhouse | Rosa purpurea


Ti avevo cantato una canzone.
Tu tacevi. La tua destra tendeva
con dita stanche una grande,
rossa, matura rosa purpurea.
E sopra di noi con estraneo fulgore
si alzò la mite notte d'estate,
aperta nel suo meraviglioso splendore,
la prima notte che noi godemmo.
