In Trutina

In Trutina

In trutina mentis dubia
fluctuant contraria
lascivus amor et pudicitia.
Sed eligo quod video,
collum iugo prebeo:
ad iugum tamen suave transeo.

In Balance

In the wavering balance of my feelings,
set against each other,
I am suspended
between love
and chastity,
but I choose
what is before me
and take upon myself the sweet yoke.

Carl Orff (1895-1982)

The world you’re coming into,
Is no easy place to enter.
Every day is haunted
By the echoes of the past.
Funny thoughts and wild; wild dreams
Will find their way into your mind.

The clouds that hang above us,
May be full of rain and thunder.
But in time they slide away
To find the sun still there.
Lazy days and wild. wild flowers
Will bring some joy into your heart.
And I will always love you,
I’ll welcome you into this world.

You-re mine and I will love you.

Paul McCartney (born 1942)
