In a sweeping song.

In the rhyme
of a sweeping
song a sincere
desire returns
to describe a
luminous
sadness.

Una dulce poesía.

En el candor
de la fuente
la nueva
sensación que
cándida regresa
como el llanto
de la noche.

Lumières.

Le souffle
d'une pensée,
le son de la
neige qui
chante le matin,
l'amour, la
poésie, la tendre
lumière d'une
aube enchantée...

En la silla.

El sonido
perpetuo de
la noche
encantada,
una dulce
poesía, el llanto,
el ardor, la
nueva emoción
que candida
viene....

Francesco Sinibaldi

La mémoire et un sourire.

Doucement,
et comme
le chant d'une
pensée, le
tendre oiseau
retrouve le
sourire de
l'aimable
jeunesse.

Danza y poesía.

Como la rima
de una hoja
que brilla,
como el sol
que regresa
en el llanto
infinito de una
noche encantada.

Francesco Sinibaldi

A gentle brightness.

In the sound
of a primrose
a luminous
feeling recalls
the atmosphere
of a sullen
desire.

Francesco Sinibaldi

Comme l'hirondelle.

Un son dans
l'immensité,
un souffle de
poésie où la
neige disparaît
avec la douceur
d'une rime
fugitive.

A smile in the morning.

The solemn
desire is a
beautiful
sadness that
often returns
when a fine
thought appears.
