Bartolo Cattafi – Feste calme / Calm holiday

Isaac Levitan, A day in June, 1895

Skylarks rejoice
in the calm holidays of heaven
the olive darkens on the ground
the green fades away
in the robin’s clear ticking.

(Transl. by D. Foglia)

Esultanze d’allodole
nelle feste calme del cielo
in terra l’oliva imbruna
il verde svanisce
al ticchettio terso del pettirosso.
