Winter by domenicododaro


"Even the light seems to be dying
in these uncertain shadows a-changing,
that a pale dawn turn into dusk,
and any face into a skull mask"

F. De Andrè: "Inverno"
(Hope my translation is not offensive... here are the Italian lines of the third stanza:
"Anche la luce sembra morire
nell'ombra incerta di un divenire
dove anche l'alba diventa sera
e i volti sembrano teschi di cera")
Looks very cold

Your translation is vero Goodrich. You were able to maintain the rhymes which is Not always easy

@bkbinthecity it was the wind, more than the low temperature...
@fbailey thank you!
@caterina thanks, Caterina! Your iPhone is really a fun guy... maybe it’s because you type in English with the Italian keyboard: try “impostazioni/generali/tastiera”: there you can download and activate other languages keyboards and then the corrector will follow the selected keyboard language!
@shannejw thanks a lot!

@domenicododaro We (old) Australians are mostly monolingual and very much admire Europeans ability to converse in more than one language.

@overalvandaan Thank you very much, Saxa. De Andrè has been a poet, indeed. Worth a careful listening.

Outstanding. A challenge for the camera itself never mind the photographer. You nailed it.
