RETURN

RETURN OFTEN AND TAKE ME
BELOVED SENSATION, RETURN AND TAKE ME--
WHEN THE MEMORY OF THE BODY AWAKENS,
AND AN OLD DESIRE RUNS AGAIN THROUGH THE BLOOD;
WHEN THE LIPS AND THE SKIN REMEMBER,
AND THE HANDS FEEL AS IF THEY TOUCH AGAIN

RETURN OFTEN AND TAKEE ME AT NIGHT,
WHEN THE LIPS AN DTHE SKIN REMEMBER...

CONSTANTINE P. CAVAFY (1912)
