"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Mist – Henry David Thoreau

“Low-anchored cloud,
Newfoundland air,
Fountain head and source of rivers,
Dew-cloth, dream drapery,
And napkin spread by fays;
Drifting meadow of the air,
Where bloom the dasied banks and violets,
And in whose fenny labyrinth
The bittern booms and heron wades;
Spirit of the lake and seas and rivers,
Bear only purfumes and the scent
Of healing herbs to just men’s fields!”


Anima fragile/Fragile soul – Vasco Rossi

“And you
I wonder where you are
fragile soul
That listened to me motionless
but without laughing.
And now who knows
who knows where you are
you found love
or like me, just looking for adventure
because you do not want to cry!
And life goes on
without us
that we are now far
from all those situations that bound us
from all the little emotions that war enough
from all those situations that never come back!
Because over time it all changes you know
we change too
and we change too
and we change too!
and we change too!”

“E tu
chissà dove sei
anima fragile
che mi ascoltavi immobile
ma senza ridere.
E ora tu chissà
chissà dove sei
avrai trovato amore
o come me, cerchi soltanto d’avventure
perché non vuoi più piangere!
E la vita continua
anche senza di noi
che siamo lontano ormai
da tutte quelle situazioni che ci univano
da tutte quelle piccole emozioni che bastavano
da tutte quelle situazioni che non tornano mai!
Perché col tempo cambia tutto lo sai
cambiamo anche noi
e cambiamo anche noi
e cambiamo anche noi!
e cambiamo anche noi!”
