Clouds

by Mimmo Mallamo June. 24, 2013 3955 views

A curious Cloud surprised the Sky,
'Twas like a sheet with Horns;
The sheet was Blue -
The Antlers Gray -
It almost touched the Lawns.

So low it leaned - then statelier drew -
And trailed like robes away;
A Queen adown a satin aisle,
Had not the majesty.

Una curiosa Nube colse il Cielo di sorpresa,
Era come una vela con le Corna;
La vela era Azzurra -
Il Palco di Corna Grigio -
Quasi toccava i Prati.

Si piegò in basso - poi più solenne avanzò -
E si dilatò come uno strascico;
Una Regina sotto un'ala di raso,
Non ne avrebbe la maestà.


(Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems, F509/J1710)

Your famous pylons marching through the landscape!
A lovely simple shot with great atmosphere.
