Poems of Niels Hav




False pride


sooner or later.

As if reality

in its innermost

structure were governed

by reason.


Despots and empires

grind to an end;

brutal murderers

and violent political


last for only a time,

then the regime falls

apart from

the inside.


The dictator’s name


into the great forgetting –

faster than the representatives

of goodness

whom the heart remembers.


New incarnations

of human evil

appear –

brutality and arrogance

mate happily

with our own desire

for a jackpot.


But the new ones

and their servile


will also disappear


their time comes.

Trust that.



is the marrow

which every morning

lifts us all

out of sleep

each with our own

flopping catch

of joy and hope.

Two Poems Of Welkin Siskin 

Ups and Downs

We go through ups and downs
But our art of life does count,
And does then the play of its lute;
We play with life, either foul or good.
Art of living is what we as humans seek,
In the world prodigious and bleak,
To guide us through windswept state;
To falter and to go a long way is never too late.
With all attempts we dare to create artistic life
To let our art in the future revive;
Artistic living is what guides us
To let us never evermore distract.

Florets of Fancy

Life through spiral goes
Weaving florets of fancy
And then it seeks for a dream
To usher us to a path of perfection.
 For, if only for a short life we could dwell
And dwell like an empty vessel,
We could not have fancies.
As humans, we dwell with innumerable fancies;
These fancies are ingredients of life
Too, to make a gateway to our destiny.
If  we could dwell without fancies
Could we then a dream never achieve;
We dwell with fancies and are we thus humans—
with desire and wants, dreams and destiny.

Send me,
Audaciously send me,
A trug of roses
And also send me,
Their fragrance
Through O’phone………
Take me
In your arms
In this global scenario
Of intrinsic internet,
And delicately tuck in
A gorgeous
Genuine fresh flower chaplet
Of Spanish Cherry
In my hair………
I would perceive
Your emotions
Invaluable than ornaments
But would you really
Fathom the depth
And perimeter of my
Intense feelings?
Agreed ssssssss………….
You would even give me
The rainbowy horizon
But would your vision
Trace out the horizon
That I do wish for?
The blood akine
Spiritual energy
Doesn’t ever let
Gain a peace
The active volcano
Dwelling inside me…………
I too,
See countless dreams
Obsessed to objectives
As never ending
Numerous dormant wishes
Keep simmering
Like the molten lava.
Would you be able
To bloom this
Dried, lifeless
Corporal flower?
Would you be able to enliven
My inanimate appearance?
Would you be able
To fill colours
In this sculpture
As once did Pygmalion?
Agreed sssssssss………
The night blooming
And blossoming
With your touch
Emanates  sandalwood fragnance
All through my senses,
As a love-light
Keeps lighting
Alike gleam of fireflies
In our love shrine………….
O dear, flowers are reborn
Through pollination,
So  flowers also
Agree to the tenets
Of nature…
Isn’t it?
Intrusion of
Every nector sucking
Bumble bees
Who crush the Body-flower
Is denied by the helpless
Wretched flowers !…..
Alas ! Even a single
Sunbeam is all enough
To wither them up……….
……Huh !
And you insist
To revital
The withered flowers?
Isn’t  it better that
Man learns not to let
The flowers wither?
Then at least
Man could proudly say
“I care you
Like the eternal flowers”
And of course dear,
When you learn caring me forever
I would yearn
Just not for this virtual
Trug of flowers
But a chaplet made of
Fresh Spanish Cherry
Every day,
Every single day, my dear………….

Eternal horizon


Hans en Bianca

in the silent room I bow my head deep to the ground

my cervix shrinks together and I lose words

that will lack all power when the sun’s rays disappear forever


despair clings to me in an evening fog of sorrow

the fumes of your image absorbed in the plane disaster

my comprehension is unable to contain it all to the full extent


with empty eyes I stare at the sky and reach for heaven

your years of life pass by like a flashing comet

lightning bolts hit the epicenter of icy loneliness


powerlessness kills the ground under my feet in the gallery of sorrow

considered thoughts seek answers in me that can’t be found in

the connections that must proceed in two worlds – earthly and heavenly


out of the clouds I feel drops of you melting together with tears on my face

I hear your voice like an echo that will keep beating in my heart until I am with you again

Anna Ferriero

I saw Hope

in a great immensity

and wind harmonica music

he was spying on me;

on the notes of my breath

composed a poem;

in the naivety of my gaze

he found himself at ease.

The stars in the clear sky

they’re writing a new story,

soon the talings

they will give birth to a new flower.

It is an unknown flower

but it has existed for millennia.

It’s more ancient than Earth.

It is the shadow of poetry.

It is the soul of the verses.

Knows every step

of the artist in love.

Red and Yellow ladybugs

they draw tulips

but the new petals overlook the sunset

Tender and Shy

they are the scent of sunflowers field


This poem is dedicated to the Ireland-Sunflower Association




Ho visto la Speranza

in una grande immensità

e la musica del vento armoniosa

spiava me;

sulle note del mio respiro

ha composto una poesia;

nell’ingenuità del mio sguardo

si è trovata a suo agio.

Le stelle nel chiaro cielo

stanno scrivendo una nuova storia,

presto le talee

daranno vita a un nuovo fiore.

È un fiore sconosciuto

ma esiste da millenni.

È più antico della Terra.

È l’ombra della poesia.

È l’anima dei versi.

Conosce ogni passo

dell’artista innamorato.

Coccinelle rosse e gialle

disegnano tulipani

ma nuove corolle si affacciano al tramonto

tenere e timide, esse

(esse) profumano di campo di girasoli


Questa poesia è dedicata all’associazione Irlanda-girasole


Elisa Mascia

L’uomo che ama di amore vero la sua donna
scopre un percorso verso il cielo
ove regna  e protegge con ampie ali Dio.
Non avranno né gelosia né possesso
l’uno dell’altro.
Energia vitale fluisce
nell’aprirsi all’amore di Dio.
Guardandosi negli occhi
vedranno quant’è immenso l’Universo…
e tutto in dono possibile diverrà
nel progetto d’amore in cui l’uomo promette :
‘Se  in futuro un dì incontrerò
colei che ha bisogno di doni
per affiorar sorriso sulle carnose labbra
e che si emozioni arrossendo le gote
ebbene quei doni
saranno come brezza marina
mai prigioniera sarà
ma vera libertà.
Rappresenterò  lo spazio circoscritto
alle sue armoniose forme corporee
e sosterò dentro lei come il tempo.
non esser frettolosa
ad anelar a mia conoscenza.
Rivelazione magica :
Spazio e tempo sarò
entro i quali divenire
simile al seme che dimora nella terra
per crescere albero rigoglioso.
Farò che respiri
avendo cura a non  soffocarla
di presunzione.
Neanche la celebrerò per come ella è.
Sprofonderò gli artigli dell’amore in lei.
La proteggerò come aquila reale dalle possenti ali.
Nessuna bramosia di manifestarmi
ma ch’ella,  per mezzo  mio,
possa ammirar monti,  valli,
mare,  cielo,  le stelle e il firmamento.
Non è me stesso in esame…
sono soltanto colui che entusiasma.
Non è di te che si discute.
Tu sei il sentiero che conduce
alle praterie dell’alba di ogni dì.
E… neanche di noi si parla :
assieme siamo il varco
per approdare a Dio
che per un istante
afferra la nostra creazione
per adoperarle.
Elisa Mascia

Small Temptations

Alicja Maria Kuberska


The lures  appear out of nowhere and weigh next to nothing.
Light and airy – they sneak quietly through life,
They are translucent, barely visible and noticeably weak.

They do not have a specific gravity of serious sins.
Quickly, in ad- hoc mode, they  justify the offenses.
They do not leave  the marks of their stay in memory

and conscience.

They abandon responsibilities, forget the dates on the calendar
They sit comfortably in a chair

and fly to the blue realm of dreams,
where  the aromas of coffee are entangled in the whiff  of the cheesecake or apple pie.

No regard for calories ,

they add cream and delicacies to the ice- cream,
They melt in the mouth the sweetness of stuffed chocolates,
In the evening they serve a glass of champagne with strawberries.

On the sunny and warm days they invite one to walk to the park
to buy from a florist  the bouquets of violets

with their last few pennies.
The blameworthy and reckless, they do not worry about finances.

Small enticements and small fibs know each other  vey well.
They together discount the extraordinary beautiful handbags, dresses and shoes.
Sometimes they occasionally purchase  the colorful

scarves and  the beads.

Innocent sins are full of irresistible charm and grace,
And as water droplets falling on stone systematically,
They crush the monolith of serious standards and steadfast rules.



Anna Ferriero

He was born in Recanati

in the sober, sober village

a little past

with the scent of lavender

and goodness of a sparrow.

In the loving period

the light of life

but that ironic and oppressed cult

He transformed your joy

in eternal pessimism.

The aroma of the print

He saved your soul in prison

that your Giordani too

he asked you to translate

and to find out how painters

but you have changed phase

singing much elsewhere

over the horizon

affirming in your traits:

“To express my world

I need my verses

no more than that prose “.

Your big closure

he made you work hard

but the family environment

maybe he trained you

and also crowned.

You, sweet little sparrow

only for the fields

you sang your Silvia

sweet and without deception

your sweet caress.

From silence and then at sunset

memories of a village

on the day of that party

where infinity begins

This poem is dedicated to the great Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi
