Post USA National Poetry Month 2017
Simple, poignant and sweet. A poem by Federico García Lorca.

It's True
Ay, the pain it costs me
to love you as I love you!

For love of you, the air, it hurts,
and my heart,
and my hat, they hurt me.

Who would buy it from me,
this ribbon I am holding,
and this sadness of cotton,
white, for making hankerchiefs with?

Ay, the pain it costs me
to love you as I love you!

I think every person should have at least one love that makes his/her hat hurt!


_________________
In love we are made visible
As in a magic bath
are unpeeled
to the sharp pit
so long concealed
--May Swenson

Now that's a lot of poetry, Robert!

Saffron, would you mind explaining the poem you just shared? ... dumb it down for me because I don't understand the hat and ribbon reference.
