Autumn is eventually knocking at our door...


“Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn — that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness — that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.”


Jane Austen (1775 - 1817)


"Il suo piacere nel passeggiare deve derivarle dall'esercizio e dalla giornata, dal vedere gli ultimi sorrisi dell'anno su foglie fulve e su siepi appassite, e dal  ripetere a se stessa alcune delle mille descrizioni poetiche esistenti sull'autunno - quella stagione di influenza peculiare e inesauribile sulla mente in quanto a gusto e a tenerezza -. quella stagione che ha ispirato in ogni poeta degno di essere letto qualche tentativo di descriverla, o alcune righe che esprimono sentimento "




Now Autumn's fire burns slowly along the woods,

And day by day the dead leaves fall and melt,

And night by night the monitory blast

Wails in the key-hold, telling how it pass'd

O'er empty fields, or upland solitudes,

Or grim wide wave; and now the power is felt

Of melancholy, tenderer in its moods

Than any joy indulgent summer dealt.



William Allingham (1824 - 1889), from Autumnal Sonnet










Ora il fuoco d'autunno brucia lentamente lungo i boschi,

E giorno dopo giorno le foglie morte cadono

 e si mischiano tra loro,

E notte dopo notte il vento minaccioso

Geme nelle serrature, raccontando come passò

Su campi vuoti, su solitudini montane,

Su ondate ampie e cupe; ed ora la potenza si avverte

Della malinconia, più tenera nei suoi moti

Di qualsiasi gioia che possa elargire l'indulgente estate.



William Allingham (1824 - 1889), from Autumnal Sonnet







An altered look about the hills—

A Tyrian light the village fills—

A wider sunrise in the morn—

A deeper twilight on the lawn—

A print of a vermillion foot—

A purple finger on the slope—

A flippant fly upon the pane—

A spider at his trade again—

An added strut in Chanticleer—

A flower expected everywhere—

An axe shrill singing in the woods—

Fern odors on untravelled roads—

All this and more I cannot tell—

A furtive look you know as well—

And Nicodemus' Mystery

Receives its annual reply!

                                            

 Emily Dickinson - F 90 (1859);140









Un aspetto diverso hanno le colline-

Una luce purpurea riempie il villaggio-

Un'alba più ampia ha il mattino-

Un crepuscolo più profondo sul prato-

Un'impronta vermiglia di un piede-

Un dito viola sul pendìo-

Una mosca impertinente sul vetro-

Un ragno di nuovo al suo lavoro- 

Il gallo di nuovo impettito-

Un fiore atteso ovunque- 

Un'ascia che stridula canta nei boschi-

odori di felci su strade non battute-

Tutto questo e di più non posso dire-

Uno sguardo furtivo da che ben sappiamo-

Come del Mistero di Nicodemo-

Ogni anno ha la sua replica!



             Emily Dickinson - F 90 (1859);140



E lasciate che concluda questa carrellata di immagini e di citazioni sull'autunno che tanto mi colma il cuore di gioia con un ultimo pensiero di Rainer Maria Rilke, poeta vissuto a cavallo tra l'epoca vittoriana e quella edoardiana, nato nell'allora Impero Austroungarico e deceduto in quella che divenne la Repubblica Ceca:


“At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. Containing depth within itself, darkness, something of the grave almost.”


*•.¸♥♥¸.•**•.¸♥♥¸.•**•.¸♥♥¸.•*


"In nessun altro momento (eccetto che in autunno) la terra si lascia assaporare in un'unico odore, quello della terra matura; in un profumo che non è in alcun modo inferiore al profumo del mare, amaro laddove sconfina nel gusto, e molto più dolce del miele quando si sente che tocca i primi suoni. Ha in sé una profondità, l'oscurità, un qualcosa di quasi tombale."


Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926 )




E che il vostro mese di Novembre abbia in serbo per voi tante piccole cose per cui gioire, 
grazie ancora e sempre di cuore a tutti voi

a presto 💕




And may your month of November bring you many small things which 

to rejoice for, thanks so much again and always to all of you,


see you soon 💕
