Cesare Pavese / Pino Daeni | In the morning you always come back, 1950



Dawn’s faint breath
breathes with your mouth
at the ends of empty streets.
Gray light your eyes,
sweet drops of dawn
on dark hills.
Your steps and breath
like the wind of dawn
smother houses.
The city shudders,
Stones exhale -
you are life, an awakening.
