Jacques Prévert | Breakfast / Prima colazione...



Lui ha messo
Il caffè nella tazza
Lui ha messo
Il latte nel caffè
Lui ha messo
Lo zucchero nel caffellatte
Ha girato
Il cucchiaino
Ha bevuto il caffellatte
Ha posato la tazza
Senza parlarmi

Edgar Allan Poe / Remi Labarre | My spells.. / I miei incantesimi.., 1848



To Marie Louise (Shew), 1848

Not long ago, the writer of these lines,
In the mad pride of intellectuality,
Maintained "the power of words"- denied that ever
A thought arose within the human brain
Beyond the utterance of the human tongue:
And now, as if in mockery of that boast,
Two words-two foreign soft dissyllables-
Italian tones, made only to be murmured
By angels dreaming in the moonlit "dew
That hangs like chains of pearl on Hermon hill,"-
Have stirred from out the abysses of his heart,
Unthought-like thoughts that are the souls of thought,
Richer, far wider, far diviner visions
Than even the seraph harper, Israfel,
(Who has "the sweetest voice of all God’s creatures")
Could hope to utter. And I!

Ghiannis Ritsos / Christian Schloe | Un albero



Quell'albero era cresciuto nella parte superiore del giardino,
alto, solitario, slanciato - la sua altezza
tradiva forse un'idea segreta d'intrusione. Non diede mai
fiori né frutti, solo un'ombra lunga che divideva in due il giardino
e una misura inapplicabile agli altri alberi, carichi e curvi.
