    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

How Heavy The Days

How heavy the days are.
There's not a fire that can warm me,
Not a sun to laugh with me,
Everything bare,
Everything cold and merciless,
And even the beloved, clear
Stars look desolately down,
Since I learned in my heart that
Love can die.
