memories belong to them

most paradises are adored from afar
in nature
or in a work of art

in a churches stained glass
in sentimental lovers of the past

(my paradise is sitting on the seashore)

it is something I have never forgotten
which all of my dreams are locked up in

where I feel a sense of belonging
when it died down
it left me with something

(for relief I turn back to this)

for such a long time I gazed without knowing
at the inaccessible life in which I was portraying

every one of those thoughts is more than an occasion
in a world of contingencies and boundless compassion

(and yet I felt myself constrained to say)

in reality
of course
it always does look after itself

(but there are also windows in the soul)

only in innocence can we discover them
a man cannot control them

(for most of us most of the time)

contemplation has no place in them
memories belong to them
