Poesie scelte: EMILY DICKINSON, Un prezioso - polveroso piacere - è (A precious - mouldering pleasure - 'tis), 1862.

Un prezioso - polveroso piacere - -
Incontrare un Libro Antico -
Proprio nell'Abito che vestiva il suo Secolo -
Un privilegio - penso -

Prendere la sua venerabile Mano -
E scaldarla nella nostra -
Un passo indietro - o due - fare -
Al Tempo in cui - era giovane -

Le sue antiquate opinioni - esaminare -
Il suo pensiero accertare
Su Temi riguardanti il nostro comune sentire -
La Sapienza dell'Uomo -

Cosa interessava gli Studiosi - di pi -
Quali Competizioni avevano luogo -
Quando Platone - era una Certezza -
E Sofocle - un Uomo -

Quando Saffo - era una Ragazza viva -
E Beatrice indossava
La Veste che Dante - divinizz -
Fatti di Secoli addietro

Egli attraversa - con familiarit -
Come Qualcuno che arrivasse in Citt -
E ti dicesse che tutti i tuoi Sogni - sono veri -
Egli visse - dove nascono i Sogni -

La sua presenza un Incantesimo -
Lo preghi di non andarsene -
I Vecchi Volumi scuotono la Testa di Pergamena
E in tal modo - ci allettano -

A precious - mouldering pleasure - 'tis -
To meet an Antique Book -
In just the Dress his Century wore -
A privilege - I think -

His venerable Hand to take -
And warming in our own -
A passage back - or two - to make -
To Times when he - was young -

His quaint opinions - to inspect -
His thought to ascertain
On Themes concern our mutual mind -
The Literature of Man -

What interested Scholars - most -
What Competitions ran -
When Plato - was a Certainty -
And Sophocles - a Man -

When Sappho - was a living Girl -
And Beatrice wore
The Gown that Dante - deified -
Facts Centuries before

He traverses - familiar -
As One should come to Town -
And tell you all your Dreams - were true -
He lived - where Dreams were born -

His presence is Enchantment -
You beg him not to go -
Old Volumes shake their Vellum Heads
And tantalize - just so -
