Frumoasa vecina noastra – Tiberiu Ceia


Tiberiu Ceia – Frumoasa vecina noastra

Frumoasa-i vecina noastra,
Scoate capul pe fereastra,
Sa vad chip frumos,
Drag si luminos.

R: Au, inima mea, ce frumoasa-i dragostea!
Ca eu cât traiesc, tot am sa iubesc.

Aseara trecui calare,
Pe la poarta dumitale,
Te zarii la lumânare,
Nacajita tare.

Dac-as sti ca de la tine,
Vine nacazul la mine,
As cânta mereu,
Tot de dragul tau.

Dac-as sti ca nu-i asa,
As sta tot la usa ta,
Ca vreau sa traiesc
Cu cine iubesc.

iubire bibelou de portelan with Mondial ( Poem by Ion Minulescu)



Romanta fără ecou  

(Ion Minulescu)

Iubire, bibelou de portelan,
Obiect cu existenta efemera,
Te regasesc pe-aceeasi etajera
Pe care te-am lasat acum un an…

Iti multumesc!…
Dar cum?… Ce s-a-ntimplat?…
Ce suflet caritabil te-a pastrat
In lipsa mea,
In lipsa ei,
In lipsa noastra?…
Ce demon alb,
Ce pasare albastra
Ti-a stat de veghe-atita timp
Si te-a-ngrijit
De nu te-ai spart
Si nu te-ai prafuit?…

Iubire, bibelou de portelan,
Obiect de pret cu smaltul nepatat,
Ramii pe loc acolo unde esti…
Să nu te misti…
Si daca ne iubesti —
O!… daca ne iubesti cu-adevarat —
Asteapta-ne la fel inca un an…
Un an macar…
Atât…
Un singur an…

Iubire, bibelou de portelan!…
