Love

Love
John Lennon

Love is real, real is love,
Love is feeling, feeling love,
Love is wanting to be loved.
Love is touch, touch is love,
Love is reaching, reaching love,
Love is asking to be loved.
Love is you,
You and me,
Love is knowing,
We can be.
Love is free, free is love,
Love is living, living love,
Love is needing to be loved.

Ya te puedes imaginar (por intuición o empatía) que me quedo con ese: "Love is touch, touch is love,"

Otro beso

Elvira dijo...

Pues yo otra vez me quedo con todo, o casi todo.

Un bacio per te

Another one I like a lot is, "Love is living, living love," but you are right, the whole song is nice. And I like the slowness, reminding me of many things including that, before I got my video camera (in Nov last year), I said to Aafke: "I'd like to make a series of short videos on Slow Beauty (I said it in Dutch: Trage schoonheid).

Love

PD: la verificación de la palabra è troppo bella per no menzionare: faroloca... Tal vez, en algún post, surgirá: faro loco...

Elvira dijo...

Yes, it is. Me gusta mucho el concepto de Slow Beauty. Con rapidez no se puede saborear la belleza.

Faroloca, faro loco, jaja. Se presta a dejar volar la imaginación. Con lo serios y responsables que son los faros, ¿qué pasaría si se volvieran locos?

Love

Would be a nice story for a "Golden book" -- the children's books once published by Simon & Schuster; do you know them? I'v read quite a few of them. My favourite one was about a little boy who got a red bike for his birthday and was not allowed to leave the garden, but... You can imagine what happened.

There is another one about a small tug boat in the harbour of New York (I think) who (yes "who", not "which") has a personalit... So these lighthouses would create all kinds of problems or misunderstandings if they were to turn insane (but maybe very healthy...) and disobey their masters... They need not create disaster, they might even create unexpected happiness, e.g. a love story that springs from a shipwrecked sailor who falls in love with the daughter (oh, como on, not that traditional!) of the lighthousekeeper... Etcetera

I don't know these books you mention, but I love good children's books!! Especially when they have beautiful illustrations.

Yes, I can imagine he managed to ride his wonderful red bike outside his garden.

"They need not create disaster, they might even create unexpected happiness.." Yes, chaos sometimes creates unexpected happiness. I think that story sounds great, Giovanni. I encourage you to write it. And the lighthouses would be who, not which, like the boat you mentioned. :-)

Este es uno de los temas de Lennon que me gustan (además de Imagine, ya sabes) y que ya ni me acordaba de él.
Da gusto volver a abrir el baúl de tiempo atrás y encontrar estas joyas ¡y todo gracias a tí, guapa!
Volviendo al tema, todo es un poema precioso, y me quedo con:
"El amor es la necesidad de ser amado"
¡Eres un tesoro!

Elvira dijo...

¡Qué bien! Eso nunca me lo habían dicho. Lo que sí me considero es "buscadora de tesoros". Me encanta descubrir cosas bonitas y enseñarlas para compartir el placer.

Besos y gracias!!!
