To bring Spring inside the heart ...



The words the happy say
Are paltry melody
But those the silent feel
Are beautiful -


Emily Dickinson, J1750





Le parole dette da chi è felice
Son meschina melodia
Ma le parole che sente chi tace
Sono bellissime -


Emily Dickinson, J1750



Analogamente a quella del Natale, quella della primavera è per me una condizione dell'animo, un modo di sentire e di vivere le piccole cose di tutti i giorni, uno stato di gioia interiore che non conosce l'avvicendarsi delle stagioni od il trascorrere degli anni; avere la primavera dentro significa gioire, sempre e comunque, quotidianamente, e non si tratta di qualcosa che possa essere imparato o trasmesso tramite insegnamento, è un dono, immenso e magnifico, che si porta dentro dalla nascita e che, come i fiori che la primavera reca, con gli anni può solamente essere coltivato e reso più gentile ... una sorta di giardino interiore dove alberga quella che chiamiamo GIOIA VERA ...




Perciò tutte le stagioni ti saranno liete,
Sia che l'estate vesta la comune terra 
Con la sua verzura, o che il pettirosso sieda e canti
Fra i ciuffi di neve sul ramo spoglio
Del melo muscoso, mentre la paglia gelata durante la notte
Fuma sotto il sole pel disgelo; sia che dalla gronda cadano gocce 
Udite solamente dalla mente assorbita dalla trance del loro suono,
O che il ministero segreto del gelo
Li tenga sospesi in ghiaccioli silenti,
Tranquillamente splendenti alla luce della quieta Luna.


Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Febbraio 1798







Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,
Whether the summer clothe the general earth
With greenness, or the redbreast sit and sing
Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch
Of mossy apple-tree, while the night-thatch
Smokes in the sun-thaw; whether the eave-drops fall
Heard only in the trances of the blast,
Or if the secret ministry of frost
Shall hang them up in silent icicles,
Quietly shining to the quiet Moon.


Samuel Taylor Coleridge, February 1798








Il mondo che tu coloravi 
il mattino dipinse di rosa -
ozioso il suo vermiglio
senza scopo il bagliore diramava
su regni di frutteti
che il giorno prima avevano conquistato
insieme al pettirosso - 

[ ...]


Emily Dickinson, J1171 (1870)





On the World you colored
Morning painted rose -
Idle his Vermillion
Aimless crept the Glows
Over Realms of Orchards
I the Day before
Conquered with the Robin -

[ ...]


Emily Dickinson, J1171 (1870)








Possedevo una gioia tanto grande
più dell'altre ai miei occhi
che smisi di misurarla, contenta
di quella forma incantata.

Fu per me limite del sogno, 

centro della preghiera,
godimento perfetto, trafiggente,
pago di sé come l'angoscia.

Non ebbi più fame né freddo; 

essi divennero fantasmi 
per questo nuovo valore dell'anima,
questa suprema ricchezza terrestre.

[...]


Emily Dickinson, J756 (1863)






One Blessing had I than the rest
So larger to my Eyes
That I stopped gauging - satisfied -
For this enchanted size -

It was the limit of my Dream -
The focus of my Prayer -
A perfect - paralyzing Bliss -
Contented as Despair -

I knew no more of Want - or Cold -
Phantasms both become
For this new Value in the Soul -
Supremest Earthly Sum -

[...]


Emily Dickinson, J756 (1863)








La felicità è come la brevità -
o ad essa proporzionale,
direbbero le scuole -
il mondo dell'arcobaleno -
Un velo 
colorato, spiegato dopo la pioggia,
avrebbe la stessa chiarezza
non fosse la fuggevolezza - 
che è alimento -

"Potesse durare"

chiedevo all'Oriente
quando la striscia curva 
accendeva il mio infantile
firmamento -
e io, dalla gioia, 
presi gli arcobaleni per cose usuali, 
e i cieli vuoti
per eccezionali -

Così pure le vite - 

così pure le farfalle - 

[ ...]


Emily Dickinson, J257 (1861) 






Delight is as the flight -
Or in the Ratio of it,
As the Schools would say -
The Rainbow's way -
A Skein
Flung colored, after Rain,
Would suit as bright,
Except that flight
Were Aliment -

"If it would last"
I asked the East,
When that Bent Stripe
Struck up my childish
Firmament -
And I, for glee,
Took Rainbows, as the common way,
And empty skies
The Eccentricity -

And so with Lives -
And so with Butterflies -

[ ...]


Emily Dickinson, J257 (1861) 






Che la gioia  e la serenità camminino sempre al vostro fianco, miei cari, mi sembra questo uno dei migliori auguri che vi possa rivolgere, dal mio cuore al vostro .... e ricordate sempre che 


V'è un Angolo di luce,
nei Meriggi Invernali ...

[...]

- picture 1




As that of Christmas, for me that of Spring is a condition of the soul, a way of feeling and living the little things of everyday life, a state of inner joy that doesn't know the seasons or the passing of the years; to have Spring inside means to rejoice, always, every day, and it is not something that can be learned or transmitted through teaching, it's a Gift, huge, magnificent, which one carries inside from the birth and that, like the flowers that Spring brings with it every year, can only be cultivated and made more gentle ... somethinhg like a inner garden where dwells what we call REAL JOY ...




Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,
Whether the summer clothe the general earth
With greenness, or the redbreast sit and sing
Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch
Of mossy apple-tree, while the night-thatch
Smokes in the sun-thaw; whether the eave-drops fall
Heard only in the trances of the blast,
Or if the secret ministry of frost
Shall hang them up in silent icicles,
Quietly shining to the quiet Moon.

      ciao è perfetto, mia cara, sei la benvenuta qui a ~ My little old world ~, anzi, è un vero onore cominciare la mia domenica con te !
      Grazie per le tue belle parole, sei gentilissima ad usare la mia lingua madre, apprezzo molto questo tuo gesto, ma ti prego, scrivi pure in inglese se ti viene più semplice, per me va benissimo !

      Ti abbraccio con il cuore augurandoti una splendida serata, ringraziandoti ancora immensamente ♡❤♡

      this wonderful teapot is a precious gift I've received from a so dear friend of mine and, as you certainly have understood, with your antiques dealer's eyes, it dates back to the English Victorian age for she only deals with antiquities coming from England and belonging to the XIXth - early XXth century.
      I love it, and I'm far too glad for your words of appreciation ... and certainly she'll also be, when I'm telling her, be sure !

      I hug you with so much tenderness and gratitude ❥

      probably your words are related to the last post of mine dedicated to the fattest men of the Regency England, it doesn't matter, darling, you're not obliged to say anything clever about them, of course, they were ill men, they passed down to history for their abuses with food and drinks, virtues are others ツ!

  50. Good morning Daniela, We have arrived home safely from our travels and I am trying to catch up with my wonderful Blue Monday friends.

    I am a fan of Emily Dickenson's poetry. Especially those that speak Spring. Your sepia photos speak to me too. They are all the things that make me smile. Especially birds.

    Happy Blue Monday my sweet friend and have a blessed week.
