Love Day

I’m decreeing Sunday posts my love day posts. I’ll try to speak on the theme of love or find those who speak on that theme much more eloquently than I do.

So today I offer this gem:

Dulzura

by

Sandra Cisneros

Make love to me in Spanish.
Not with that other tongue.
I want you juntito a mi,
tender like the language
crooned to babies.
I want to be that
lullabied, mi bien
querido
, that loved.

I want you inside
the mouth of my heart,
inside the harp of my wrists,
the sweet meat of the mango,
in the gold that dangles
from my ears and neck.

Say my name. Say it.
The way it’s supposed to be said.
I want to know that I knew you
even before I knew you.

Think I’ll keep looking for good remakes:
