    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

    - Hermann Hesse

I Know, You Walk--

I walk so often, late, along the streets,
Lower my gaze, and hurry, full of dread,
Suddenly, silently, you still might rise
And I would have to gaze on all your grief
With my own eyes,
While you demand your happiness, that's dead.
I know, you walk beyond me, every night,
With a coy footfall, in a wretched dress
And walk for money, looking miserable!
