Knowledge

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.

' Knowledge ' 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. - In ITALIAN: ' 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.
