by Ada Negri (1870 - 1945)

Nevicata
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Sui campi e sulle strade
Silenziosa e lieve,
Volteggiando, la neve
Cade.

Danza la falda bianca
Ne l'ampio ciel scherzosa,
Poi sul terren si posa
Stanca.

In mille immote forme
Sui tetti e sui camini,
Sui cippi e nei giardini
Dorme.

Tutto dintorno è pace:
Chiuso in oblìo profondo,
Indifferente il mondo
Tace...

Ma ne la calma immensa
Torna ai ricordi il core,
E ad un sopito amore
Pensa.
