Yours - Poem by Daniel Hoffman

I am yours as the summer air at evening is
Possessed by the scent of linden blossoms,

As the snowcap gleams with light
Lent it by the brimming moon.

Without you I'd be an unleafed tree
Blasted in a bleakness with no Spring.

Your love is the weather of my being.
What is an island without the sea?

    Sentiments expressed by the poet in celebration of his deep love for his beloved. Unmatched.

    I don't think here could be a better set of words worthy of such a lively relationship. Thanks.

    - In ITALIAN:

    Il tuo amore sono le stagioni del mio essere.
    Che cosa è un'isola senza il mare attorno?
