    by Hesse, in Italian:

    ''Io ti chiesi''

    Io ti chiesi perché i tuoi occhi
    si soffermano nei miei
    come una casta stella del cielo
    in un oscuro flutto.
    Mi hai guardato a lungo
    come si saggia un bimbo con lo sguardo,
    mi hai detto poi, con gentilezza:
    ti voglio bene, perché sei tanto triste

Lying In Grass

Is this everything now, the quick delusions of flowers,
And the down colors of the bright summer meadow,
The soft blue spread of heaven, the bees' song,
Is this everything only a god's
Groaning dream,
The cry of unconscious powers for deliverance?
The distant line of the mountain,
That beautifully and courageously rests in the blue,
Is this too only a convulsion,
