(Swans - October 19, 2009)  

mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,
I found myself inside a dark wood,

hungry clouds swag on the deep—
spelunca alta
        fuit vastoque immanis hiatu
        tuta lacu nigro
            nemorumque tenebris—
and a vast cave was there
by a black lake
   and the forest darkness sheltered

down into the winding cavern
            we groped our tedious way...
        all was darkness



Picture: obscure road, by Guido Monte (2007).
