A Beautiful Night - An Italian Poem Of Giuseppe Ungaretti In English Translation - Poem by Ravi Kopra

What song has risen tonight
that echos in my heart
interweaving the stars!

What a spring festival
of marrying hearts in love!

I was a steady pool of darkness.

Now I bite emptiness like a baby
biting his mother's breasts.

I'm now in the drunkenness
of the universe.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

La notte bella

Quale canto s'è levato stanotte
che intesse
di cristallina eco del cuore
le stelle

Quale festa sorgiva
di cuore a nozze

Sono stato
uno stagno di buio

Ora mordo
come un bambino la mammella
lo spazio

Ora sono ubriaco
d'universo

-Giuseppe Ungaretti
Devetachi, il 24 agosto 1916
