Joan Margarit i Consarnau


Midsummer night´s dream

We have stopped the car
beside a wall of cypresses.
It´s thirty years we´ve lived together.
I was an inexperienced youth and you
a warm and helpless girl.
The last opportunity is casting
its shadow over the moon.
I am an inexperienced old man.
And you a helpless middle-aged woman.
