Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Le nuvole sono legate alla terra ed al vento.
Fin che ci saran nuvole
sarà bella la vita. Sollevo la testa
e un gran gioco si svolge lassù sotto il sole.
Masse bianche durissime e il vento vi circola
tutto azzurro talvolta le disfa
e ne fa grandi veli impregnati di luce.

(liberamente tratto da "Canzone" di Cesare Pavese")

English.png English translation

The clouds are tied to the hearth and the sky.
As soon as there will be clouds
the life will be happy. I raise my head
and a big game is happening up there under the sun.
White,hard masses, and the blue wind goes around them
and sometimes it undoes them
and does with them big veils impregnated with light.
