John Keats - All'autunno (To autumn)

Poesie scelte: JOHN KEATS, in Poeti inglesi dell'ottocento (Firenze, Casa Editrice Marzocco 1925).

Tempo di nebbie e d'ubertà matura,
Dell'almo sole amico prediletto;
Tu che, seco, la vite ti dai cura
Di far felice d'uve, intorno al tetto,
E di pomi i muscosi alberi adorni,
Gonfi la zucca, e alle nocciuòle un sapido
Gheriglio infondi, e i frutti empi di nettare,
E ancor fai gemme, ultimi fior per l'api,
Ond'esse credon che coi caldi giorni
Sopra la terra Estate ognor soggiorni,
Per cui trabocca ogni umida celletta:

Chi non ti ha visto tra le tue ricchezze?
Talor chi cerca scopre te: sei colco
Su un'aia, pigro, ventilanti brezze
Fra i tuoi crini asolando; o presso un solco
Mezzo-mietuto, mentre il tuo falcetto
Lascia di tagliar l'erba e i fiori attorti,
T'infondono i papaveri il sopore;
O, attraversando un rivo, il capo eretto,
Come spigolatrice, a volte porti;
O, ad un torchio di sidro, gli occhi assorti
Tu fissi al gemitio per ore ed ore.

Dove son, dove i cantici di Maggio?
Non pensarvi, hai tu pur tua melodia:
Quando, affocando il dì che muor, d'un raggio
Roseo le stoppie opaca nube stria,
Un coro di zanzare si querela
Tra i salci fluviali, in basso o in suso
Spinte, secondo il vento cada o aneli,
E dai borri gli agnelli adulti belano,
Cantano i grilli, ed un gorgheggio effuso
Fa il pettirosso da un giardino chiuso,
Rondini a stormi stridono pei cieli.

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells.

Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?
Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
Thee sitting careless on a granary floor,
Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind;
Or on a half-reap'd furrow sound asleep,
Drows'd with the fume of poppies, while thy hook
Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers:
And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep
Steady thy laden head across a brook;
Or by a cyder-press, with patient look,
Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours.

Where are the songs of spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too, -
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,
And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;
Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn
Among the river sallows, borne aloft
Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
The red-breat whistles from a garden-croft;
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.
