Schönheit / Beauté

Wenn du, Natur, eine Gestalt bildern willst,
Vor den Augen der Welt, wie viel du vermagst, darzutun,
Ja, dann trage der Liebling
Deiner unendlichen Milde-Spur.

Alles an ihm sofort Ebenmass,
Wie ein prangender Lenz, von Bluten geschwellt, jedes Glie;;
Huldreich alle Gebärden,
Alle Bewegungen sanft und leicht.

Aber in sein Schwärmergesicht prägest du
Den lebendigen Geist, und jene, wiewohl fröhliche,
Doch kaltblütige Gleichmut,
Wiegend in Ruhe Begier und Kraft.

Si toi, Nature, tu veux jamais former une figure,
Comme tant tu peux le prouver aux yeux du monde,
Alors, oui, que ce favori du coeur porte
De ta douceur infinie la marque.

Que sitôt tout chez lui soit en une seule harmonie,
Et ses membres en fleur pareils à un printemps radieux;
Tous ses gestes prodigues faveurs,
Tous ses mouvements légers et délicats.

Mais dans son visage enthousiaste tu empreins
L'esprit de ce qui vit, et cette joyeuse,
Autant que placide sérénité,
Qui se berce avec repos, désir et force.

Janvier 1827

Summer Memories

It was yesterday, it was so long ago,
We were the best buddies in the world,
We were always hanging together...

I miss your blond hairs caressing my face,
I miss the warmth of your back against mine,
I miss your voice, your smile, our silence,

So close friends we were, we shared dreams and sorrows,
Hopes and secrets, and joy and pain,
Lost in the fields, lost among the flowers of summer,

When even the sun does not want to leave the sky,
When birds and cicadas sing and sing forever
So close friends we were, do you remember ?

It was yesterday, it is too late,
Where are you gone, my loved friend, my beloved friend,
Time flies away so fast, I love you, my summer buddy...

Sonnet "To Tommaso de' Cavalieri"

 "With your fair eyes a charming light I see, 
For which my own blind eyes would peer in vain; 
Stayed by your feet the burden I sustain 
Which my lame feet find all too strong for me; 
Wingless upon your pinions forth I fly; 
Heavenward your spirit stirreth me to strain; 
E’en as you will, I blush and blanch again,
 Freeze in the sun, burn ’neath a frosty sky.  
Your will includes and is the lord of mine; 
 Life to my thoughts within your heart is given; 
My words begin to breathe upon your breath: 
Like to the moon am I, that cannot shine 
Alone; for lo! our eyes see nought in heaven "
Save what the living sun illumineth."

Michael Angelo Buonarroti
Sonnet XXX "To Tommaso de' Cavalieri"
Trad. John Addington Symonds

Iconic pic

This magnificent pic mirrors so well youth and beauty, light and water, and this unreal moment, when one's face is so say liquefying... Water is slowly dripping from the hairs and from the open mouth, from the forehead and from the noose, caressing this boy's face in the most intimate and tender way...

This pic is a visual hymn about freshness and youth, about life and time -- time fades out like these drops of water falling from this face...
