Giuseppe Ungaretti – E’ folle e usata, l’anima / The soul is mad and worn

Guido Reni, St Sebastian, c. 1616

The soul is mad and worn.
God, look upon our weakness.
We would have some certainty.
Do you now not even laugh at us?

(Transl. by Carlo Luigi Golino)

E’ folle e usata, l’anima.
Dio, guarda la nostra debolezza.
Vorremmo una certezza.
Di noi nemmeno più ridi?
