~ PERDERTI / TO LOSE YOU (Italian/English)

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?
Di certo ognuno prenderà
Il fiore
Per suo conto.
Tra noi è crollato
L’ultimo ponte ferreo
Velato da strani ideali.


(10 February 1968)





Losing you,
In the immensity of things, to lose you.

I lost you
As I lost that lovely
Ray of sunlight that
Hit me between the opaque shades
Of a sentiment, just now.

In memories you are a phantasm.
Who will pick now
The flower
Entering San Francisco?
Surely each of us will take
A bloom
On their own.
Crumbled between us
Is the last ferreous bridge
Veiled by strange ideals.

A poem in Italian I wrote together with my best friend on parting -- ahhhh, my hippie days (well, flowers in San Francisco,right?) when I was 18 and ready to face the adventure of my life... Which I did, and it paid out. I'm still living it!

And the English translation, which is mediocre because it doesn't render the longing flavour of my youthful Italian...
