    by Carducci, a lovely poem (Italian text) :

    Pianto Antico

    L'albero a cui tendevi
    la pargoletta mano,
    il verde melograno
    da' bei vermigli fior,
    nel muto orto solingo
    rinverdì tutto or ora
    e giugno lo ristora
    di luce e di calor.
    tu fior della mia pianta
    percossa e inaridita,
    tu dell'inutil vita
    estremo unico fior,
    sei ne la terra fredda,
    sei ne la terra negra;
    né il sol più ti rallegra
    né ti risveglia amor.

Hymn To Satan

To you, creation’s
mighty principle,
matter and spirit
reason and sense

Whilst the wine
sparkles in cups
like the soul
in the eye

Whilst earth and
sun exchange
their smiles and
words of love

And shudders
from their secret embrace run down
from the mountains, and
the plain throbs with new life

To you my daring
verses are unleashed,
you I invoke, O Satan
monarch of the feast.

Put aside your sprinkler,
priest, and your litanies!
No, priest, Satan
does not retreat!

Behold! Rust
erodes ...
