A Poet

A Poet

To be a poet is to remain forever young
 To understand the sun before the scholar's words
 To be able to sleep and to sleep again
 On another planet in a secret meadow

 To embrace the universe with tenderness
 and to relish the impossible happiness of some crazy dream
 To keep doing tirelessly and always to welcome
 every minute with an open mind

 To be a poet is to dialogue with shadows and lights
 To begin a bright day when darkness hangs heavy on your hands
 To be a poet is to read new words on every face
 To be a poet is to be able to say and to glorify

 To probe the abyss of the heart
 To love without constraints, to pine for love
 To be a poet is to recognize oneself in the present moment
 It's to be fully alive

 To be a poet is to stretch out the arms to life
 To say life when the rabble death cries
 To be a poet is to be born again every second
 To be a magnificent tree in the valley of peace
