To fall

combine-etrato-outonoredux

The falling leaves drift by my window
The falling leaves of red and gold
I see your lips the summer kisses
The sunburned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall…

(Giorgio Canali, Francesco Magnelli, Gianni Maroccolo, Massimo Zamboni, Giovanni Lindo Ferretti, The falling leaves )

“Isn’t everything alive already in your blood?”

(Friedrich Hölderlin)

…let me see your beauty…

combine-dance-me

“Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

(…)

Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love…”

(Leonard Cohen, Dance Me To The End Of Love)

-to Leonard Cohen, hoping that I can see always the beauty and I can dance till the end –
