- Praying is another way of singing.
You plant in the tree the soul of lemons.
You plant in the gardens the spirit of roses.
- I know the colour rose, and it is lovely,
But not when it ripens in a tumour.
- Poem The Pathology of Colours
- Leave my soul alone, leave my soul alone
- And silence matched the silence under snow.
