Mid-Night Lovers

How many mid-nights

Did we spend together

Watching Eros playing dice?

 

How many mid-nights

Did we pantomime the echoes

Of the Verona lovers’ cries?

 

And tell me now because you love me

How many mid-nights will we spend

Immersed in scintillating moons

And poisoned by the jasmine scent?
