On Dancing and Trancing

Let me hold you in my hands a minute more, my love
Let me kiss you one more time while the night is new,
Let me swirl you one more time and have my hands on you,
Let me catch you one more time when the turn has turned.

Let me one more moment have in this seductive dream -
Let me one more touch to have that in my soul would gleam -
So I make my day to Count and may night to Mean,
So I have one thing to want and one dream on which to lean.

Let me swirl you one more time as long the dance keep going,
Let me have you in my soul as the time keeps rowing,
Let me touch you one more time - the touch means so much,
Let me stand with you in trance while the trance is such.
 
¿Por qué no me dijiste que estabas construyendo
ese castillo de arena?
Hubiera sido tan hermoso
poder entrar por su pequeña puerta,
recorrer sus salados corredores,
esperarte en los cuadros de conchas,
hablándote desde el balcón
con la boca llena de espuma blanca y transparente
como mis palabras,
esas palabras livianas que te digo,
que no tienen más que el peso
del aire entre mis dientes.
Es tan hermoso contemplar el mar.
Hubiera sido tan hermoso el mar
desde nuestro castillo de arena,
relamiendo el tiempo
con la ternura
honda y profunda del agua,
divagando sobre las historias que nos contaban
cuando, niños, éramos un solo poro
abierto a la naturaleza.
Ahora el agua se ha llevado tu castillo de arena
en la marea alta.
Se ha llevado las torres,
los fosos,
la puertecita por donde hubiéramos pasado
en la marea baja,
cuando la realidad está lejos
y hay castillos de arena
sobre la playa…

[FONT=&quot]I can't say what would be my favorite poem, but I can say that my three favorite poets are Baudelaire, Lautréamont and Trakl.[/FONT]
 
I have many, many, loved poems. One that comes to mind quite often recently is Arnold's On Dover Beach.

Here is the last stanza:

Rimani:

Gabriele D’Annunzio
Rimani! Riposati accanto a me.Non te ne andare.Io ti veglierò. Io ti proteggerò.Ti pentirai di tutto fuorchè d’essere venuto a me, liberamente, fieramente.Ti amo. Non ho nessun pensiero che non sia tuo;non ho nel sangue nessun desiderio che non sia per te.Lo sai. Non vedo nella mia vita altro compagno, non vedo altra gioia.Rimani.Riposati. Non temere di nulla.Dormi stanotte sul mio cuore…

Stay! Rest beside me.
Do not go.I will watch you. I will protect you.You'll regret anything but coming to me, freely, proudly.I love you. I do not have any thought that is not yours;I have no desire in the blood that is not for you.You know. I do not see in my life another companion, I see no other joyStay.Rest. Do not be afraid of anything.Sleep tonight on my heart…
