Anna Akhmatova – Distacco / Parting

Jakub Schikaneder, Evening in the garden, 1907

Evening and slanting,
 downward goes my way.
Yesterday in love still,
“Don’t forget” you prayed.
Now there’s only shepherds’
 cry, and glancing winds,
 and the worried cedars
 stand by clear springs.

Ho davanti la via isoscele
della sera.
Già ieri, innamorato,
supplicava: “Non dimenticarmi”.
E adesso solamente i venti
e i gridi dei pastori
e i cedri agitati
sopra fresche fontane.
