Beyond the brown hill
Above the silent cedars,
Blackbirds flee the April rains.

    .....wonder if this poem has more of a meaning
    than just imagery of blackbirds
    escaping an April shower ★

    '' Oltre la bruna collina
    Alti, sopra i cedri silenziosi,
    Merli fuggono le piogge di aprile. ''
