De Dragobete, cu drag tuturor!

Dar tu ai învãţat?

M-ai învãţat sã iubesc
Ninsorile şi corbii
Sã iubesc ura şi destinul
Cu aceeasi unitate de mãsurã

M-ai învãţat sã trãiesc
dezbrãcatã de hainele de duminica
sã iubesc goalã puşcã
arzând pe rugul cetãţii

M-ai învãţat sã iubesc
iubire fãrã de hotar şi
fãrã de habarul strãlucirii
ce se întoarce tot mai des în noi

M-ai învãţat sã iubesc intoleranţa
Şi puritatae cu aceeaşi inocenţã
Sã le topesc sub zâmbetul zãpezilor
Pânã când izvoare din stâncã vor zvâcni

M-ai învãţat sã iubesc întâmplarea
Şi aerul dintre cuvinte pânã când
Rãsãritul va scãlda cu luminã
Fiecare fereastrã şi fiecare zâmbet

M-ai învãţat sã ţes aducerile aminte
Şi sã le torc punţi peste
Apele repezi dintre inimi
Şi dintre uitãrile destinului

Mi-ai învãţat dorul sã colinde
printre casele înrobite de secunda de fiere
sã lase cetina sã zboare spiralã peste cer
cu ochii copiilor rãsãrind zâmbetele bunicilor.

M-ai învãţat sã picur dragoste
Paşilor desculţi printre morminte
M-ai învãţat sã iubesc istoria
Respirând între douã inchiziţii

M-ai invãţat parfumul florilor
Muzica sferelor iar zambetul stelelor
Sã-mi fie frate şi sorã drumurilor
Întortocheate de destin.

M-ai învãţat sã sãrut tãcerea pe gurã
Pãtimaş, sã o strâng cu aripile îngerilor
Pânã când rãcnetul cuvintelor
Va şuiera printre neputinţe strigând


Dar tu ai învãţat?
