EL AMOR BRUJO
How to say this? You are too close to bear,
You are fruit bursting in the heart,
You are the name the dumb mouth bears
Like sea in the earth’s palm.
I touch, and envy my touching hand;
Touching, I yearn to touch.
Terror of this motionless moment:
You are here inside, here is inside here.
Here burns the soul-fire burns,
The heart unconsumed.
AMIR OR, Israel (1956)
