L'ultimo sonno

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Il nonno dorme,
eppure ha gli occhi aperti,
mi parlò della mamma e del buon Dio,
poi disse: Addio!
Il nonno dorme, eppur sembra là
immoto statua di marmo
nel sagrato stesa
di nostra chiesa.
Povera bimba!
chiudi gli occhi al nonno;
prete e becchino te lo portan via;
Ave Maria!
siam sabbia che trasvola
non è più il nonno:
è poca informe terra che va sotterra.
