Love Without Love
Love Without Love
-Luis Lloréns Torres
I love you, because in my thousand and one nights of dreams,
I Never once dreamed of you.
I looked down paths that traveled from afar,
but it was never you I expected.
Suddenly I've felt you flying through my soul
in quick , lofty flight,
and how beautiful you seem way up there, far
from my always idiot heart!
Love me that way, flying over everything.
And, like the bird on its branch, land in my arms
only to rest,
then fly off again.
Be not like the romantic one who,
In love, set me on fire.
When you climb up my mansion,
enter so lightly, that as you enter
the dog on my heart will not bark.
Translated by Julio Marazán
This is one of those poems that make me thing and feel all tingily inside. I can imagine not any bird when they talk about this but a dove and the way it describes the flight in quick lofty flight
