Hermann Hesse / J. W. Waterhouse | Rosa purpurea

Ti avevo cantato una canzone.
Tu tacevi. La tua destra tendeva
con dita stanche una grande,
rossa, matura rosa purpurea.
E sopra di noi con estraneo fulgore
si alzò la mite notte d'estate,
aperta nel suo meraviglioso splendore,
la prima notte che noi godemmo.

Luca Carlevarijs (Italian painter, 1663-1730) View of the Molo Venice looking west


By the bridge I stood
recently in the brown night.
From the distance came the sound of song;
golden drops surged away
over the vibrating surface.


Stavo sul ponte,
poco tempo fa, nella notte bruna.
Di lontano giungeva un canto:
gocce d’oro affioravano
sulla superficie vibrante.
