Poesie – Sonetto 47 di William Shakespeare [Ribloggato da Cantiere Poesia]

Cantiere poesia

And each doth good turns now unto the other:
When that mine eye is famish’d for a look,
Or heart in love with sighs himself doth smother,

A chi pianta dal ciel sì buon terreno.

As in the twilight brown, on hillside bare,
Useth to go the little shepherd maid,
Watering some strange fair plant, poorly displayed,
Ill thriving in unwonted soil and air
Far from its native springtime’s genial care;
So on my ready tongue hath Love assayed
In a strange speech to wake…
