eri bellissima

stupendamente tonda

oh sorridente viso dorato
ridevi con me...!?

perchè andavo da lui


You were beautiful

stupendously round

oh goldenfaced beamer
you were laughing with me...!?

because I was on my way to him



Author's Note: so was the moon this evening when i was on my way
to visit my son and his beautiful family

'moonful'...all a moon can hold

The moon as a bright and happy analogy of personal emotions.

The moon should always shine brightly upon you Maria. It needs someone to share its beauty with and you are the pefect one.

I would love to hear your voice, this language. Reading the words sans translation is divine. And also, divine with translation. You match your poems in your spirit and presence, *m.a

I agree with George- a beautiful moon and a beautiful woman make a beautiful poem!

Your sparse words are also filling. Thank you for them.

Your continuing affection for the moon and its unique luminescence "shines" through this lovely poem, Maria
