Ombra Mai Fu

— Eike Waltz

 

From the Series – Tears of an Immigrant
Ombra mai fu –
In the treasure drove of words, languages and music
I found the opening aria of the opera Xerses by Handel 1738

Ombra mai fu
di vegetabile,
cara ed amabile,
soave più.
Dear gods…
All.. you competing gods…
Visiting
my troubled earth.
Touching
intimate souls
so profoundly….
We are one.. and…none
divided…by natures unrest
lost in histories forgetfulness.
And then…
I don’t want to leave you…sad..
Why should I be… mad..
What is the meaning… of being… bad…
Just… let me end…ever so glad……
…Ombra.. mai.. fu…
Never.. there was a shade…
longer than a day…
shorter than a night…
stronger than fiction…
As only roses… can see…
definitely…
the infinity…
of eternal.. light.
Ombra mai fu
Never was made
the shade of a plant,
so dear and loving,
or more gentle.
And all the vegetables…I don’t like to eat… may be… forgiven…
And all the poisonous strawberry’s… I love to eat
Will finally kill me….it’s so lovely…indeed
Ombra mai fu
Never …there was… a shade…in a day…you couldn’t bee
