Temporale/ Storm by Giovanni Pascoli



Giovanni Pascoli

Un bubbolìo lontano. . .

Rosseggia l’orizzonte,
come affocato, a mare:
nero di pece, a monte,
stracci di nubi chiare:
tra il nero un casolare:
un’ala di gabbiano.


Giovanni Pascoli

In the distance, rumbling…

Red glows the horizon,
as if ablaze, at sea:
black as pitch, the mountain,
clouds ashen and tatty:
from the dark a dwelling:
a gash, a seagull’s wing.
