Let's take the time to smell the roses ...


When Roses cease to bloom, Sir,
And Violets are done—
When Bumblebees in solemn flight
Have passed beyond the Sun—
The hand that paused to gather
Upon this Summer's day
Will idle lie—in Auburn—
Then take my flowers—pray ! 




Quando le rose smettono di fiorire, Signore,
e le violette sono passate- 
quando i calabroni in volo solenne
sono transitati al di là del sole-
la mano che indugiò per cogliere
in questo giorno estivo
giacerà oziosa-nell'ombra dorata- 
Accetta dunque questi miei fiori, ti prego !

Emily Dickinson, J32, c.1858








The Bee is not afraid of me.
I know the Butterfly.
The pretty people in the Woods
Receive me cordially—

The Brooks laugh louder when I come—
The Breezes madder play;
Wherefore mine eye thy silver mists,
Wherefore, Oh Summer's Day? 





Non mi teme l'Ape.
Conosco la farfalla.
I graziosi abitanti del Bosco
Mi ricevono amichevolmente-

Più forte ridono i ruscelli quando arrivo-
Più sbarazzine giocano le Brezze;
Perché il tuo argento annebbia il mio sguardo,
Perché, Oh Giorno d'Estate?

Emily Dickinson, J111, c.1859











A sepal, petal, and a thorn 
Upon a common summer's morn - 
A flask of Dew - A Bee or two - 
A Breeze - a caper in the trees - 
And I'm a Rose !




Un sepalo, un petalo, ed una spina
In un comune mattino d'estate-
Un fiasco di Rugiada-Un'Ape o due-
Una Brezza-un frullo tra gli alberi-
Ed io sono una Rosa !

Emily Dickinson, J19, c.1858












This Bauble was preferred of Bees-
By Butterflies admired
At Heavenly - Hopeless Distances-
Was justified of Bird-

Did Noon - enamel - in Herself
Was Summer to a Score
Who only knew of Universe-
It had created Her. 




Questo nonnulla fu amato dalle Api-
Da farfalle ammirato
Da una Celeste-Disperata Distanza
Ebbe l'approvazione degli Uccelli-

Ed abbellì-di Sè Stesso-il Meriggio
E fu l'Estate per una Ventina di Esseri
per i quali la sua esistenza 
era la sola prova che avessero di un Universo.

Emily Dickinson, J805, c.1863










Carissimi amici e lettori, spero che vi sia stata gradita questa passeggiata tra le alcune delle rose che l'estate ci ha donato, accompagnata dalla musicalità e dalla liricità dei versi dell'amata ed ammirata poetessa americana Emily Dickinson ... e che altrettanto gradito vi giunga questo mio abbraccio colmo di gratitudine !

A presto 💕




Dearest friends and readers of mine, I hope to have pleased you with this walk among some of the roses that this Summer has given us, accompanied by the musicality and lyricism of the verses of the beloved and admired American poet Emily Dickinson ... and that, as welcome as this, may reach you my warmest hug filled with gratitude !

See you soon 💕

      a dire il vero questo mio periodo di assenza è stato dettato da motivi di forza maggiore, principalmente dal lavoro allo Short Lets che gestisco qui a Tenuta Geremia che durante il periodo estivo vede la piena stagione, dalla preparazione del discorso che ho tenuto alla conferenza tenutasi a madonna di Campiglio per l'Associazione culturale Elisabetta d'Austria Sissi di cui faccio orgogliosamente parte, oltre che da motivi di famiglia, restauri etc, ... tutto ben lontano dal riposo, ahimè, ma sono felicissima di essere tornata, ormai mancavo da troppo tempo ed avvertivo un ... senso di vuoto ... il blog e tutti voi che mi seguite siete parte della mia vita, inutile negarlo !

      Anche tu mi sei mancata molto, carissima, e con il cuore ti abbraccio forte come non mai per augurarti una splendida domenica d'estate, grazie per il calore e la gioia con cui hai accolto il mio rientro, sei davvero dolcissima ❥

      Fortunately we do live in Northern Italy, quite far from the zone hit by the earthquake, that doesn't mean that we all aren't so very sad for the tragedy which has interested once more the central part of our peninsula ... I'm so very grieved for all those people, died or still under the rubble of their homes - if they do survive they've got anything at all - whole ancient countries razed to the ground ... I'm truly shocked by the scenes I've watched on TV.

      The thing is that I had to allow myself a period of 'interlude' due firstable to work reasons - the Short Lets I manage here at Tenuta Geremia, the speech about the Empress of Austria I had to prepare and to perform at the conference which was held last Saturday at Madonna di Campiglio, in our Dolomiti, some works of restoration here and the family to join and follow ... actually I couldn't be everywhere !

      don't worry about me, dearie, yes, I'm safe, for I live quite far from the area hit by this terrible tragedy, I live in Northern Italy, and I'm leaving hours of grief, praying for those people who have lost everything in their lives, if they're still alive they have to start everything again ... from nothing ... having just a heap of dust ... May the Lord give them the strenght they need ...

      I'm so grateful to you for your sincere concern showing your love, thank you, you're truly a sensible, sweet-hearted Lady, darling ❀≼♥≽❀

  43. I am glad to read in the comments that you are safe from the terrible destruction. I have been saddened by the news...Italy holds a special place in my heart. The roses are lovely my friend. We planted several rose bushes in the Spring and I am enjoying the pretty blooms. Sweet hugs, Diane

      we all in our Country are mourning the poor victims of this terrible tragedy, and what to say about the destruction which only earthquakes bring ... so many historic places of ours are razed to the ground !

      I'm so glad to read that you also are enjoying your roses in bloom, they bring so much joy to our heart, don't they, sweet friend of mine ?!?

      Thanking you so much for your visit today and for your words, I'm sending hugs and ever much love to you ♥♡♥

      I sincerely thank you, the roses we are growing in our estate are such a treasure to me, they bless my heart each year more and more and I'm so glad to read that you're so pleased by my photographs !

      As for the gadget I checked it and it's working, probably you haven't a Google + account, that's the only chance you have to add to my followers ( things have changed less than a month ago, until then you coul join with every profile you wanted, now things are different and more difficult, I wonder why ! ).
