Weariness- Stanchezza

(EN)

Christmas

I have no desire
to throw myself
into a tangle
of streets
I have much
weariness
on my shoulders
Leave me like this
as a
thing
placed
in a
corner
and forgotten
Here
nothing is felt
other than
the good warmth
I’ll stay
with the four
summersaults
of smoke
from the hearth

(by Giuseppe Ungaretti)
