Nje kalimtareje

Rruga rreth e rrotull zjente e zhurmonte.
Veshur në të zeza në dhimbje madhështore,
një grua shkoi duke tundur plot salltanet,
kindet e dantellat e fustanit të saj të gjatë

Po pija në mejhane i përhumbur, tapë e ekstravagant
kur ajo kaloi para meje, me kembë prej statuje e fisnike
si shqiponjë. E, thellë në sytë e saj, qiell gri ku lind urugani,
pashë embëlsinë që magjeps e epshin që vret… 

Ish një vetëtimë verbuese e pastaj u bë… natë!
O bukuri kalimtare që më bëre të fluturoj me krahë,
vallë, s’do të shoh më, në këtë jete a në eternitet?

Ajo iku e humbi mes turmës! S’do t’a shihja kurrë!
Nuk dija ku vinte e as ajo s’dinte ku shkoja unë.
Por, oh, qeshë i bindur! Po, qeshë i sigurtë!
Ajo do ish gruaja që do të kisha dashuruar…
