Narcissus


Narcissus: THE NARCISO




A Narcissus was born on the window
and the Sol gave him his first greeting,
and I then gave him a sweet rice
to thank him for having come;
to thank him for coming
to sprout on my window;
until it looks beautiful and smiling
it means that he sincerely wants me,
but when later I will see him languishing
it means that your good is about to end,
and I will remain, when he is dead,
deprived of you, of the flower and of comfort;
and will remain when he no longer lives,
of the flower, of comfort and of you deprived.
