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.

Shakespeare / Yves Pires | Tu sei per la mia mente, come cibo per la vita...

Yves Pires - French sculptor
Yves Pires - French sculptor

Tu sei per la mia mente, come cibo per la vita.
Come le piogge di primavera, sono per la terra.
E per goderti in pace, combatto la stessa guerra
che conduce un avaro, per accumular ricchezza.
Prima, orgoglioso di possedere e, subito dopo,
roso dal dubbio, che il tempo gli scippi il tesoro.
Prima, voglioso di restare solo con te,
poi, orgoglioso che il mondo veda il mio piacere.
