in silenzio, alla deriva

    Newer Older

    «Questa è Venere per noi; di qui il nome amore,/di qui prima stillarono dolcissime gocce nel cuore, e a vicenda successe la gelida pena;/se infatti è lontano chi ami, ti è accanto l'immagine /del suo volto, ti aleggia alle orecchie il suo nome soave./Ma conviene che tali fantasmi si fuggano, che si ricusi/Ogni alimento d'amore, ad altro il pensiero si volga,/e il seme si eiaculi in casuali amplessi,/né lo si serbi, una volta filtrato, a un amore esclusivo,/futura pena a se stessi e sicuro travaglio./Brucia l'intima piaga a nutrirla e col tempo incarnisce,/divampa nei giorni l'ardore, l'angoscia ti serra,/se non confondi l'antico dolore con nuove ferite,/e le recenti piaghe errabondo lenisca d'instabili amori,/o ad altro tu possa rivolgere i moti dell'animo.»

    (Lucrezio, De rerum natura, Libro IV, Milano, Rizzoli 2000, vv.1058-1072)
