Italian poetry with Arianna – Il lampo della bocca

After some time, I made a new video in the series on Italian poetry. in this new video I talk about the poem Il lampo della bocca, by Giuseppe Ungaretti.

Here’s the text:

Migliaia d’uomini prima di me,
Ed anche più di me carichi d’anni,
Mortalmente ferì
Il lampo d’una bocca.

Questo non è motivo
Che attenuerà il soffrire.

Ma se mi guardi con pietà,
E mi parli, si diffonde una musica,
Dimentico che brucia la ferita.

I hope you enjoy it, and to see you soon on this blog. Ciao ciao!
