Per sempre

WHEN YOU ARE OLD AND GREY AND FULL OF SLEEP

 

When you are old and grey and full of sleep

And nodding by the fire, take down this book,

And slowly read and dream of the soft look

Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep:

 

How many loved your moments of glad grace,

And loved your beauty with love false or true

But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,

And loved the sorrows of your changing face

 

And bending down beside the glowing bars,

Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled

 

And paced upon the mountains overhead

And hid his face amid a crowd of stars

 

 

I tuoi occhi conobbero un tempo il tuo sguardo dolce: sognali insieme alle loro ombre.

Chi amò la tua anima pellegrina e il dolore del tuo volto mutevole li sogna con te
