    by Hesse, in Italian:

    ''Io ti chiesi''

    Io ti chiesi perché i tuoi occhi
    si soffermano nei miei
    come una casta stella del cielo
    in un oscuro flutto.
    Mi hai guardato a lungo
    come si saggia un bimbo con lo sguardo,
    mi hai detto poi, con gentilezza:
    ti voglio bene, perché sei tanto triste

Lonesome Night

You brothers, who are mine,
Poor people, near and far,
Longing for every star,
Dream of relief from pain,
You, stumbling dumb
At night, as pale stars break,
Lift your thin hands for some
Hope, and suffer, and wake,
Poor muddling commonplace,
