PADRE

Poem By Paolo Ruffilli

Padre potente
arbitrio comando
signore che prende
che regge le fila
che muove e sostiene
dominio e licenza.
Padre che è assente
Sole lontano
ignoto mestiere
enigma che incalza
diverso e straniero
limite termine fine.
Padre splendente
pensato e sognato
tenuto soltanto per mano
guerriero tornato
per poco disposto a restare
giocare parlare una volta
babbo papà.

Other poems of RUFFILLI

Love

Thus, I suddenly
catch myself in the mirror
in a stifling embrace
while I project myself

Journey

I know what I have felt
again and again
and never has it been
something abstract

Tunnel

And all at once
deep in the tunnel
that goes on and on,
in the dead air

Whenever I Go

Then, at last
I get moving
notwithstanding
the urge to stay

Nowhere

How many times
have I left
before daybreak or
at dead of night

Desire

I think of myself
whose hand caresses
the willing body
lying open to any assault

Roald Dahl
