Paolo Giuseppe Mazzarello
Aal)the Origins, India - Poem by Paolo Giuseppe Mazzarello
'O senseless care of the mortals'
In 1298, Marco Polo rotted in the gaols of Genoa.
He was Venetian seaman and was taken prisoner in the battle of Curzola.
He met the writer Rustichello da Pisa.
They both worked together for a book.
The courses were changing, as Lorenzo Canestro taught us.
The big harbors of India would lay down the law,
The little maritime republics should accept the goods.
Not found colonies. Be a base.
