Stanko, my love...

Oskar Kokoschka - Martha Hirsch (Dreaming woman)

ah, quién fuera Martha Hirsch, para que Kokoschka le hiciera un retrato y Stanko le compusiera a una algo así:


me too...

I am in need of music
I am in need of music that would flow
Over my fretful, feeling fingertips,
Over my bitter-tainted, trembling lips,
With melody, deep, clear, and liquid-slow.
Oh, for the healing swaying, old and low,
Of some song sung to rest the tired dead,
A song to fall like water on my head,
And over quivering limbs, dream flushed to glow!
There is a magic made by melody:
A spell of rest, and quiet breath, and cool
Heart, that sinks through fading colors deep
To the subaqueous stillness of the sea,
And floats forever in a moon-green pool,
Held in the arms of rhythm and of sleep.
