MAÇ / THE KISS
I saw you in the garden of anxieties You were alone amid the roses Your voice more lovely than the nightingale You sang from the depths of your heart O come, dear heart, come quickly Come and give me a kiss Come quickly and give me a kiss So as to satisfy my heart Chestnut eyes, weeping-willow hair And a tongue of sugar How I’d love to take a bite! For others, you wrap yourself in knots With your aubergine-like legs! What wicked spirit are you, what devil? My God, you have destroyed me. You do not sing for me. For whom are you singing? You don’t even know yourself … Free singing part: O come, dear heart, The cockles of my heart Are on fire for you. I weep for help You don’t even write an email It kills me — your suffering
