He towered over the other men as if he were a member of some superior race, and if a smile appeared on his wind-burned face it was like a flash of lightning striking a rock, so strongly did his stern features stand out amongst the pale and cheerful faces of those around him that he always seemed alone and distant from the thoughts of others.
She watched him from the little piazza of the hotel as he stood alone on the large terrace, silhouetted like a colossal bronze statue against the glacier of Mont Tabel; she saw him like a quivering little dot as he climbed up the snow to the top of the Great Wall of the Alps with a speed that was so reckless it even caused the guides down below to tremble.
But thanks to the comments of others and the remarks of newcomers who sought him out, even when she could not see him she was always reminded of his image as if he were reflected from a hundred mirrors. And likewise for him, it was not love but pity that caused him to think of her a hundred times, even when he wanted to rid her from his thoughts. Those sudden blasts of air that sometime blow down from the Matterhorn and that feel as if they had been expelled from some massive chest made him think of the poor panting breath of life bursting out of those feeble lungs in a fatal cough.
The stars that shine along the crest of the mountains like flames above the rocks and then a moment later are hidden from view, suggested to him the image of those great flaming eyes that would soon be extinguished. The beautiful ladies, so vigorous and florid, returning from their morning excursions, caused him to turn his thoughts with a sense of painful tenderness to those poor arms through which one could see the bones as if they were covered in some transparent veil.
Even when his thoughts were far from that place and from those people that he saw scudding suddenly in front of him as if they were clouds being swept away by the wind, he remembered that light white dress that hung nearly empty on her and under which was a heart that beat for him, and he was seized with a great tenderness as if for a daughter that he had found after many years and which he was going to lose again.
Every now and then he suddenly sensed her gaze without even seeing her; it was like a hand that gently caressed him. Sometimes he heard the sound of her cough, and it caused him to fancy that her sadness pervaded the very air like the echo of a voice that continually bids adieu. She was little more than a sad face seen in passing that had smiled and sighed at him; a dying girl who had loved him. One morning under a clear and radiant sky, a group of ladies and girls wearing veils over their heads and hobnailed climbing boots and gentlemen and boys with walking sticks in hand and rifles slung over their shoulders milled around on the little piazza of the hotel amid a pack of mules with red saddles and porters with flowered hats who were loaded down with ropes and bags, all making a great din of shouts and laughter which covered up even the sound of the nearby stream.
They were about to leave on a trip that had been planned for several days to the Teodulo Glacier. She was at that moment in the reading room, alone, sitting on a chair which was always left to her, with a book in her hands, but she was not reading.
While listening to the festive shouts and whoops, she felt a regret that in refusing the invitation she had not tried; she felt almost a reversal of her repentance or a bitter humiliation, much like a neglected child. She had a sudden temptation to get up, run out to the group and march off with them as well; she would make a violent effort, even if she might fall by the wayside and be brought back as a corpse.
A bevy of young men and women glowing with health and happiness burst into the room to greet her. Have fun all of you. See you this evening. Off with you, now. Then a wave of anguish swept through her soul. She let the book fall, covered her face with her hands and remained in that unhappy position, suffocated in a knot of tears without being able to cry—wanting to die. She heard footsteps in the hallway. She thought that it was a waiter, and she quickly pulled herself together, picked up the book, placed it open on her knees, and so that she might hide her emotions better, she leaned her head back and pretended to doze.
The steps drew near, stopped a moment at the door, and then they came toward her stepping slower and more softly, and then stopped again. She dared not open her eyes for fear of revealing her pretense, but her heart was beating wildly. She heard the steps move away, and her blood stirred. It was he who walking away on tiptoes and with bowed head. She lowered her eyes in bewilderment, and saw on the open book an alpine rose. Oh, he had foreseen it all; he had sought her out and brought her a tear of pity and a word of comfort in the form of a rose!
She gave a restrained cry of joy, but it issued from her mouth as a strangled cough. She smiled, brought her lips to the flower, and then amidst wheezing and coughing, the tears began to flow—unstoppable, fiery and sweet. It was as if Death which had gnawed away at her lungs had suddenly fled, overwhelmed by that wave of emotion; her white lips had regained their strength and the youthful hope from that single rose.
She looked down smiling through her tears at the flower and did not see the blood that had been left there by her kiss. After that, a passion blazed up in her like a flame that consumed her resurrected soul along with her devastated body. Hers was the secret joy of a private and hidden treasure, the silent adoration by a supplicant to the saint who had granted her mercy.

It was a humble and continuous pursuit; the more futile the more intense it was. A single glance from him compensated her in a brief instant for an entire day of waiting. The trick was to get away when she began to cough so as not to distress him, and yet she felt satisfaction when she thought that when he heard her, he would feel even stronger pangs of pity.
There was even a sweetness in the jealousy that she felt when she sometimes saw him talking with the pretty ladies who had sought him out; it was as if that jealousy in her mind was the affirmation and proof that she was right, and she was infinitely grateful to imagine that he avoided those encounters so as not to give her any unhappiness. It was also a joy to cherish the fantasy, the dream knowing it to be just a dream , that thanks to a miracle of nature he saved her, then love grew between them and they would have a future that was divinely happy.

But she knew that this was impossible. It was an intoxicating thrill every time she glanced at the superb peaks that his feet had trod upon, to breathe the air that had filled his powerful and generous chest, to be kissed by the sun that had darkened his uplifted face, to be buffeted by the same wind that had ruffled the gray hair on the handsome face of this fearless conqueror of mountains.
But amid all of these joys, there was an increasing terror in her heart at the thought of the approaching day of her own and his departure. This feeling became stronger from day to day as did the contrast between an ardent desire to approach him or talk to him, the temptation to satisfy this desire with a strange and daring act, and an insurmountable fear, a terror that nearly caused her to accomplish that deed which she would never have done otherwise and let him know her feelings in no uncertain terms.
And amongst all these loving and frantic thoughts, she still returned most often and with deeper sweetness, like a divine retreat from her first imaginings, to being taken by him to the peak of the great mountain and to die there, feeling the beat of his heart and the sound of his voice, of being buried up there far away from the world, where he would come back every year to lay a rose on her grave covered by Alpine snow, bathed every day with the first and the last rays of the sun.
And then almost unexpectedly the last night came to betray them. She knew that he would not return. Where to? Wherever she went, it would be toward autumn and to winter, both of which awaited her in the plain like a mortal enemy lying in ambush.

That evening she came to the concert by the band of a battalion of Alpini [soldier-mountaineers] who had been camped for two days just below the Hotel Giomein. They put on their tattoo in the little piazza of the hotel where the officers had dined; at intervals they played cheerful tunes and popular songs amidst a crowd of ladies and gentlemen, soldiers, guides and children who were in groups or strolled about under a crystal-clear sky in which were deeply engraved by the thousand black dots of the mountain chain of the Matterhorn which was crowned with stars.
The entire hotel staff was outside; there was no one left inside. She was with her father in a corner of the little piazza leaning against a pillar of the balustrade, and from there she searched for him in the crowd with growing consternation. She looked at the windows, down the slope, hoping to send him a final greeting of love and desperation, but he was not there.
The window of his room was closed and dark. Maybe it was his intention not to let her see him any more. This she believed. For her he was already gone, already far away and lost to her forever.

All at once this thought took possession of her in in her imagination it was as if a spectral being was squeezing her neck in an attempt to suffocate her with one hand and was poised to tear out her heart with the other. She snapped out of this with a jolt, and immediately felt the need to escape, to go and close the door of her room behind her as if it were a sepulcher. With whatever strength that remained to her, she dashed up the stairs. The stairway and corridors were deserted, and the building seemed abandoned. She climbed to the second floor and paused on the landing to catch her breath and then rushed into the hall to the left.
Somewhere - in silence - He has hid his rare life From our gross eyes. But - should the play Prove piercing earnest - Should the glee - glaze - In Death's - stiff - stare - Would not the fun Look too expensive! Would not the jest - Have crawled too far! So che Egli esiste.
Da qualche parte - in silenzio - Ha nascosto la sua vita rara Al nostro occhio grossolano. Ma - dovesse il gioco Rivelarsi profondamente serio - Dovesse la gioia - cristallizzarsi - Nel rigido - sguardo - della Morte - Non sembrerebbe il divertimento Troppo costoso? Non sarebbe lo scherzo - Andato troppo oltre? Nella seconda la certezza si scolora un po', diventando una sorta di gioco a nascondino con il mistero "instant's play", "ambush", surprise" , e nelle ultime due si fa strada un dubbio inquietante vv.
I tend my flowers for thee - Bright Absentee! Bado ai miei fiori per te - Fulgido Assente! Verdict for Boot! Di', Piede, decidi la questione - La Signora attraversa, o no? Verdetto a favore dello Stivale! Non si deve aver paura di rischiare qualcosa per raggiungere uno scopo.
After great pain, a formal feeling comes - The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs - The stiff Heart questions "was it He, that bore," And "Yesterday, or Centuries before"? Un dolore si insinua profondamente nel nostro intimo e provoca una sensazione di gelo paralizzante. Nell'ultimo verso le sensazioni che via via si impadroniscono del nostro animo vengono descritte con sintetica precisione, prendendo a prestito quelle che via via si succedono quando qualcuno sta morendo assiderato: il freddo che cristallizza la mente bloccandone ogni reazione, lo stupore per qualcosa che non ci aspettavamo, la rinuncia a difese che sembrano ormai vane.
a short story by Edmondo De Amicis
It will be Summer - eventually. Gli ultimi tre versi della quarta strofa derivano dalla poesia J Nell'edizione Franklin le due poesie sono considerate come versione "A" inviata a Samuel Bowles e "B" nei fascicoli della F Per le "genziane del patto" v. La Mia Ricompensa per l'Esistenza - fu Questa. Her little Book - The leaf - at love - turned back - Her very Hat - And this worn shoe just fits the track - Herself - though - fled!
Il suo piccolo Libro - La pagina - all'amore - riaperta - Proprio il suo Cappello - E questa scarpa che portava si adatta all'impronta - Sebbene - lei - sia fuggita! La descrizione di una sensazione molto comune, una paura irrazionale come quella del buio a cui guardiamo con stupore una volta passato l'evento che l'ha suscitata. I dreaded that first Robin, so, But He is mastered, now, I'm some accustomed to Him grown, He hurts a little, though - I thought if I could only live Till that first Shout got by - Not all Pianos in the Woods Had power to mangle me - I dared not meet the Daffodils - For fear their Yellow Gown Would pierce me with a fashion So foreign to my own - I wished the Grass would hurry - So when 'twas time to see - He'd be too tall, the tallest one Could stretch to look at me - I could not bear the Bees should come, I wished they'd stay away In those dim countries where they go, What word had they, for me?
They're here, though; not a creature failed - No Blossom stayed away In gentle deference to me - The Queen of Calvary - Each one salutes me, as he goes, And I, my childish Plumes, Lift, in bereaved acknowledgement Of their unthinking Drums -. They leave us with the Infinite. Ci lasciano con l'Infinito. Come in molte altre poesie le certezze iniziali sono sfumate nel finale: "if true".
