A Mysterious Epigraph - Poem by James Merrill

These days which, like yourself,
Seem empty and effaced
Have avid roots that delve
To work deep in the waste.

    A Mysterious Epigraph

    These days which, like yourself,
    Seem empty and effaced
    Have avid roots that delve
    To work deep in the waste.


    - IN ITALIAN:
    __________

    Una misteriosa Epigrafe

    Questi giorni che, come te,
    Sembrano vuoti ed insignificanti
    Hanno avide radici che scavano
    Per agire in profondità su ciò che è inutile.
