Two poems by Francesco Favetta

The voice of time 

The voice of time

in his eternal songs


tell the story

hollows out his face

wise nourishes the roots

and teaches how to live

in the dances of life.

Odd or even

they don’t count inside the veins

it will be a storm

or I sing in my heart

in this sea of mine

they always drown


love and freedom.                                                               

Innocents without a land

Where is Peace

in the long flowing river

bringing in the waters

in the womb wet from war

trails of blood and mourning.

I am still

the desperate roots

of innocents without a land

and the cruelties within the walls

to pay for oblivion and silence.

In this desert

huge in the heart

their mouths remain silent

of those men killed

from the brother close behind.
