A Translation: ' Conoscenza ' (A Poem By Louise Bogan)

Poem By Fabrizio Frosini

.
[This is my Italian translation of 'Knowledge' - by Louise Bogan]
.


'Conoscenza'

Ora che so
Come la passione scaldi un po'
Di carne nello stampo,
E come fragile sia il tesoro —

Rimarrò qui ad imparare
Come, sopra la terra dove stanno,
Gli alberi proiettano una lunga ombra
E un lieve suono.


=====================================


'Knowledge' - (Louise Bogan)


Now that I know
How passion warms little
Of flesh in the mould,
And treasure is brittle, -

I'll lie here and learn
How, over their ground
Trees make a long shadow
And a light sound.
