Eternal Father


Come closer, you distant animal,
Let me see your face;
Come closer, even if your light
Or darkness will kill me.

It is not a fair game
Following wrong steps
Into the end-roads
Of an endless labyrinth.

Come closer, you wild animal
Even as a chimera or fata morgana;
Let me see your face
My dearest friend and father.

of the slow autumn at my window,
