Pedro Salinas / Jean Delville | Sospingimi.. / Empújame..

Sospingimi, lanciami
da te, dalle tue guance,
come da isole di corallo,
a navigare, ad andare lontano
per cercarti, a cercare
fuori di te ciò che possiedi,
ciò che non mi vuoi dare.

Per rimanere sola,
inventami foreste vergini
con alberi di metallo
