Dear playful boy by G. Leopardi
Dear playful boy, your age brings flowers
And plenty of joy, and serene hours
Bouncing at your life's gate
Enjoy, my boy, this suave state
This season blithe and warm.
Enough! And may the storm
-late as it comes-
Come softly on your fate.
(verse translation by Lamberto Bozzi)
