Lunea de poezie (V)

For today, two different poems that I discoverd during my vacantion days. A written one, and a singable one…One is the revelation of a book (not mine) which I started reading on a sunny beach in Greece, the other is a piece of music that kept repeting on a very long way with the bus when coming home. Today I am a DREAMER…(holiday mood :))

Love after love (Derek Walcott)

The time will come

when, with elation

you will greet yourself arriving

at your own door, in your own mirror

and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

 and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was your self.

Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart

to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored

for another, who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,

peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit. Feast on your life
