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


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


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


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
the urge to stay


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


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

Roald Dahl
