Emily Dickinson - Per te io curo questi fiori

Emily Dickinson - Per te io curo questi fiori

Poesie scelte: EMILY DICKINSON, Tutte le poesie (Milano, Meridiani Mondadori 1997).

Per te io curo questi fiori,
fulgido assente!
Si fendono le vene di corallo
della mia fucsia – ed io semino e sogno –

I gerani si tingono di chiazze –
umili margherite si frastagliano –
dirada il cactus le spinose punte
per mostrare la gola –

Stilla aromi il garofano
presto colti dall'ape –
un giacinto nascosto
sporge il capo arruffato –
esalano profumi
da fiale così tenui
che ti domandi come li serbassero –

Fiocchi di raso spargono le rose
sferiche sulla ghiaia del giardino –
pure – tu non sei qui –
e vorrei che i miei fiori
non avessero più rossi colori–

Che sia felice il fiore
e il suo signore – assente –
mi dà solo dolore –
in un calice grigio mi rinchiudo –
umilmente – per esser d'ora in poi
la tua margherita –
in lutto di te!


Traduzione di Silvio Raffo


I tend my flowers for thee –
Bright Absentee!
My Fuchsia's Coral Seams
Rip – while the Sower – dreams –

Geraniums – tint – and spot–
Low Daisies – dot –
My Cactus – splits her Beard
To show her throat –

Carnations– tip their spice –
And Bees –pick up –
A Hyacinth – I hid –
Puts out a Ruffled Head –
And odors fall
From flasks – so small –
You marvel how they held –

Globe Roses –break their satin glake –
Upon my Garden floor –
Yet – thou – not there –
I had as lief they bore
No Crimson – more –

Thy flower – be gay –
Her Lord – away!
It ill becometh me –
I'll dwell in Calyx – Gray –
How modestly – alway –
Thy Daisy –
Draped for thee!

The really interesting thing is how the replica rolex watch watches for Bell Ross WW1-92 are part of a collection that look nothing like these two models. Look at the Bell Ross WW1-97 for example.
