Lake Trasimeno

by Maria Cinanni

Today I am a fisherman
watching the summer day.
If I sail into the sky
I will breathe all of dawn.

Today I am a dolphin
swimming through the oceanís
waves in peaceful August.
If I close my eyes I am at sea.

The rows of olive trees
on the hills
will soon be filled
with sunlight.
