Poems by Francesco Favetta

Επιμέλεια: Εύα Πετροπούλου Λιανού

Sea never lost!

Sing life
without the chains
they sing the word
and the truths in the veins
in this rebellious breath
where fate
he was never born
nor is darkness ever winter
even if the ways
they are poisons in thoughts.
which is not
never lost
deep inside the roots
place where the values
they have always been seeds
there they reign eternal
respect and freedom
every faith in life
stones and words.
it is an oak tree
with a majestic crown
with branches stretched to the sky
songs in the heart
without constraints and burdens
the roots sink into history.
At the bottom of the sea
in the night
they sail on the tides
last trip
it never was
in the bowels of the soul
love is
eternal breath inside.

Freedoms fly away!

And meanwhile it’s raining
in the streets of the town
and slowly return
in their homes
tired from hard work
sweaty hands
rudderless hopes
humble fates in life.
Freedoms fly away
and dignity too
behind the windows in emptiness
and then tears fall into the dark
of these lives stolen from the stars
under this black sky
wounded by rage in the flesh
they die in hearts in silence.

Dirty hands with earth

The face
always rough
soiled hands
in the eyes
the light of memories
face streaked with fatigue
farmer at heart
and in life.
You come
still from afar
and inside this dress
dirt from stones
get out of the grooves
you wear
the smell of the ears
and some seeds.

The greatest novel of life

Roses again
again the sea and poetry
in the blood and in the heart
in this crazy desire
love that screams louder
black or white is never grey.
It’s love
the greatest novel of life
always young never tired
eternally in love with madness
a little out of my mind
king of life and heart.
Love and its smell
his words and his every reason
this rebellious heart
that doesn’t stay in the skin
lives and dances with its waves
disappears in the dark of night.
