Perderti / To Lose You (Italian/English)

Rating: 5.0

Perderti,
Nell’immensità delle cose, perderti.
Ti ho perduto
Come ho perduto quel grazioso
Raggio di sole che mi
Ha colpito tra i veli opachi
Di un sentimento, or ora.
Nei ricordi sei un fantasma.
Chi coglierà adesso
La margherita nell’entrare

A San Francisco?

COMMENTS OF THE POEM
Will Barber 25 May 2006

The loveliness of the Italian is rendered very gracefully in English. I liked them both very much. I really needed that translation, too - I'm only a beginner in trying to read Italian. It's lovely, reading the poem, trying to understand it, scrolling down later to read the english. Then back up to learn a little Italian. I love the imagery, the music. .....well..... the glimpse of a memory piercing the veil.
