My love

My love is so vast

That a sheet of paper

Will not be enough to write about it.

Bring the sky down,

I will cover it with the ink of love.


My love is meek like a lamb,

Carrying the rustic scent of my grandmother’s cottage

Where I was born and grew up,

Portraying in innumerable guises

The fragile experience that life is.


My feelings are of high spirit and artistic purity.

Very early, I learned the unfolding

Of the magical wings of love,

Affecting all those around me positively.


I never knew what love is

Until I fell in love.

Like the vibrant colors of Spring,

I danced, drunk with love

While the stars winked at me.

I sang merrily like a lark

While the pastoral symphonies spread around.


How can I write about this love

On a single sheet of paper?

Give me the vast sky,

There, I will write about my love.
