Lady of Distances


I love you only because you're lovely,
And my star commands me,
Not, my sweet good, through hope I’ll gain
Anything but pain.

And if you showed pity at any time
For these eyes of mine,
I’d expect nothing for all my crying
But still more crying.

Nor, though you hear the ardent sighs
That I scatter to the winds, will my
Heart hope anything from you will flow
Other than sorrow.

Let me only love, and look at you,
And then let me sigh for you,
Since pain, sorrow, crying are the gifts I see,
For all my loyalty.

Torquato Tasso (1544 - 1595)

The Lady you see in my collage is a painting by Angnolo Brozino (1503-1572) called Florentine Noblewoman With Gloves. I gave her another background and a new meaning. Below you can see the original painting:
