Poesie - Lelio Porreca

Come frecce nere

 

Corvi con ali tese

non tagliano líaria:

planando silenziosamente

nellíaria affondano

come frecce nere.        

                   

                                   

 

 

 

 

Like Black Arrows

 

Ravens with stretched-out wings

Donít cut the air:

Gliding silently

Through the air they sink

Like black arrows.
