Lightly child, lightly

dress-wind-breeze-white

Lightly, lightly, very lightly
A very light wind passes,
And it goes away just as lightly,
And I don’t know what I’m thinking,
Nor do I wish to know.

~ Fernando Pessoa, from section XIII of “The Keeper of Sheep,” A Little Larger Than the Entire Universe: Selected Poems

  1. You are thinking
    will it reveal as it blows
    what my thoughts are will others know
    lightly or softly…it goes..
