Giuseppe Gioacchino Belli Poems

  • Once Upon A Time
    Once upon a time, a king saw fit
    to send this proclamation through the land:
    'I am I, you vassals aren't worth shit â??
    that's how it is, so kiss my royal hand! ...
  • Er Caffettiere Fisolofo (the Philosophizing Barman)
    L'ommini de sto monno sò l'istesso
    Che vaghi de caffè ner macinino:
    C'uno prima, uno doppo, e un'antro appresso,
    Tutti quanti però vanno a un distino. ...
  • What's The Pope Do?
    What's the pope do? Drinks, and takes a nap;
    looks out the window, has a bite to eat,
    fiddles with the housemaid's garter strap,
    and makes the town a cushion for his feet. ...
  • Er Confessore (the Confessor)
    Padre... -- Dite il confiteor. -- L'ho detto. --
    L'atto di contrizione? -- Già l'ho ffatto. --
    Avanti dunque. -- Ho detto cazzo-matto
    A mi' marito, e j'ho arzato un grossetto. -- ...
  • Er Companatico Der Paradiso (heaven's Food)
    Dio doppo avé creato in pochi giorni
    Quello che c'è de bello e c'é de brutto,
    In paradiso o in de li su' contorni
    Creò un rampino e ciattaccò un presciutto. ...

Thomas Hardy Poem
Her Reproach
 by Thomas Hardy

Con the dead page as 'twere live love: press on!
Cold wisdom's words will ease thy track for thee;
Aye, go; cast off sweet ways, and leave me wan
To biting blasts that are intent on me.

But if thy object Fame's far summits be,
Whose inclines many a skeleton o'erlies
That missed both dream and substance, stop and see
