Clouds have no frontiers (Hope)

by Mimmo Mallamo March. 11, 2013 4505 views

Look: the trees exist; the houses
we dwell in stand there stalwartly.
Only we
pass by it all, like a rush of air.
And everything conspires to keep quiet
about us,
half out of shame perhaps, half out of
some secret hope.

Vedi, gli alberi sono, e le case
in cui si dimora, anche stanno.
Ma solo noi,
come una folata, sfiorando le cose passiamo.
E tutto concorda nel tenerci ascosi,
forse per vergogna in parte
o per inseprimibile speranza.

(Rainer Maria Rilke, “Duino Elegies”)

The placing of the building is exactly right.
(The clouds arranged themselves very nicely too)
