Brothers - Poem by Giuseppe Ungaretti

What regiment d'you belong to
brothers?

Word shaking
in the night

Leaf barely born

In the simmering air
involuntary revolt
of the man present at his
brittleness

Brothers

    this is the Italian text
    ________________

    'Fratelli'

    (Mariano il 15 luglio 1916)

    Di che reggimento siete
    fratelli?

    Parola tremante
    nella notte

    Foglia appena nata

    Nell'aria spasimante
    involontaria rivolta
    dell'uomo presente alla sua
    fragilità

    Fratelli

    this is another wonderful poem by Ungaretti

    ''Soldati''

    Si sta come
    d'autunno
    sugli alberi
    le foglie


    - in English:

    'Soldiers'

    Here we are
    like leaves on
    trees, in Autumn
