Listen, my heart

Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)

Listen, my heart, 
in his flute is the music 
of the smell of wild flowers, 
of the glistening leaves 
and gleaming water, 
of shadows resonant 
with bees' wings.

The flute steals his smile 
from my friend's lips 
and spreads it over my life.

Ascolta, o cuore

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the English

Ascolta, o cuore: 
nel suo flauto
è la musica di aulenti fiori silvestri
e foglie smaglianti 
ed acque scintillanti
ed ombre risonanti 
d'ali d'api.

Il flauto invola il sorriso 
alle labbra dell'amico mio
e lo effonde sulla mia vita.
