Pedro Salinas | Che allegria vivere / What a joy to live

Arrendersi
alla grande certezza, oscuramente,
che un altro essere fuori di me,
molto lontano,
mi sta vivendo.

Pedro Salinas | Ciò che tu sei.. / Lo que eres.. / What you are..

Ciò che tu sei
mi distrae da ciò che tu dici.

Lanci parole veloci
inghirlandate di risa,
e m’inviti ad andare
dove mi vorranno condurre.
