Two Poems

for Volterra

Volterra Bella

Roberto Veracini - PoetLa città-nave

Per arrivare a Volterra occorrono mille miglia
di querce, sassi e tramontana, intere
frontiere di lupi e cinghiali, giorni lunghi
siderali e spazi immensi
e aspri, uomini arcigni e solitari, terre
d’argilla assolate, inospitali, pietre durissime
da scolpire, mura chiuse e feritoie
e una pena sottile, che assale…

Roberto Veracini
Volterran Poet

The morning smile scented with roses
the smile of a bird
flying over the mountains
between grapes woodlands
and singing
I’m free
without borders

the infinite smile of children in the morning
and the delight of the valley at the spring rain
the shimmer of a day at early hours of dawn
I miss you

Asaad Hail - Iraqi Actorlet me sleep on your lap like an infant
drink more wine and be lost
and rest
from anxieties of affections
and distant hope

the blush on the good people’s cheeks
will I come back to you one day?
I will, I will
