    Along the Arno River…

    By SelinaMakin

    arno-river-tuscany-final1

         The Arno river springs from Mount Falterona in the Casentino area on the Tuscan side of the Apennine Mountains It starts its journey to the sea by taking a southward detour toward Arrezzo before meandering Westward past Montevarchi then Northward onto it’s most iconic point in Florence and it’s famous Ponte Vecchio. From there it winds its way through the beating heart of Italy’s Shoe and leather industry and cities and towns like Empoli, Pisa and Pontedera before liberating its waters into the the Ligurian sea at Marina di Pisa and the famous Bocca d’Arno. At 241 kilometres in length (150 mi), it is the largest river in the region.

    Bocca d’Arno

    di Gabriele d’Annunzio

    Bocca di donna mai mi fu di tanta
    soavità nell’amorosa via
    (se non la tua, se non la tua, presente)
    come la bocca pallida e silente
    del fiumicel che nasce in Falterona.
    Qual donna s’abbandona
    (se non tu, se non tu) sì dolcemente
    come questa placata correntìa?
    Ella non canta,
    e pur fluisce quasi melodia
    all’amarezza.
    Qual sia la sua bellezza
    io non so dire,
    come colui che ode
    suoni dormendo e virtudi ignote
    entran nel suo dormire.
    Le saltano all’incontro i verdi flutti,
    schiumanti di baldanza,
    con la grazia dei giovini animali.
    In catena di putti
    non mise tanta gioia Donatello,
    fervendo il marmo sotto lo scalpello,
    quando ornava le bianche cattedrali.
    Sotto ghirlande di fiori e di frutti
    svolgeasi intorno ai pergami la danza
    infantile, ma non sì fiera danza
    come quest’una.
    V’è creatura alcuna
    che in tanta grazia
    viva ed in sì perfetta
    gioia, se non quella lodoletta
    che in aere si spazia?
    Forse l’anima mia, quando profonda
    sé nel suo canto e vede la sua gloria;
    forse l’anima tua, quando profonda
    sé nell’amore e perde la memoria
    degli inganni fugaci in che s’illuse
    ed anela con me l’alta vittoria.
    Forse conosceremo noi la piena
    felicità dell’onda
    libera e delle forti ali dischiuse
    e dell’inno selvaggio che si frena.
    Adora e attendi!
    Adora, adora, e attendi!
    Vedi? I tuoi piedi
    nudi lascian vestigi
    di luce, ed a’ tuoi occhi prodigi
    sorgon dall’acque. Vedi?
    Grandi calici sorgono dall’acque,
    di non so qual leggiere oro intessuti.
    Le nubi i monti i boschi i lidi l’acque
    trasparire per le corolle immani
    vedi, lontani e vani
    come in sogno paesi sconosciuti.
    Farfalle d’oro come le tue mani
    volando a coppia scoprono su l’acque
    con meraviglia i fiori grandi e strani,
    mentre tu fiuti
    l’odor salino.
    Fa un suo gioco divino
    l’Ora solare,
    mutevole e gioconda
    come la gola d’una colomba
    alzata per cantare.
    Sono le reti pensili. Talune
    pendon come bilance dalle antenne
    cui sostengono i ponti alti e protesi
    ove l’uom veglia a volgere la fune;
    altre pendono a prua dei palischermi
    trascorrendo il perenne
    specchio che le rifrange; e quando il sole
    batte a poppa i navigli, stando fermi
    i remi, un gran fulgor le trasfigura:
    grandi calici sorgono dall’acque,
    gigli di foco.
    Fa un suo divino gioco
    la giovine Ora
    che è breve come il canto
    della colomba. Godi l’incanto,
    anima nostra, e adora!
    Gabriele D’Annunzio

    (Marina di Pisa, 6 luglio 1899)

    A Useful Guide To The Election !!

    By SelinaMakin

    79ac1caa-28c6-4788-950f-03c166501ba4-620x372

     In the words of tactical voter, Philomena Cunk

    Faithfully reproduced from the Guardian, so you can still read it when the link expires !!

    Why should you vote?

    They say that if you don’t vote, you can’t complain. But the Queen doesn’t vote and she looks pissed off with everything unless it’s a horse. Mind you, I’d probably have a face like that if I kept getting serenaded by Gary Barlow.

    Can you explain Farage, Clegg, Cameron, Sturgeon and Miliband?

    Farage is the new one who looks like Fozzie Bear trying to sneak into Parliament by putting Kermit on his shoulders, poking out the top of a stolen suit.

    Clegg – I’ve got a trick for remembering which one he is: I think of which one I can’t remember and that’s him.

    Cameron is the one who was born to rule, but they keep having elections instead, which you can see gets right on his wick.

    Sturgeon is the one who looks like an auntie who’s come to pick one of the others up.

    Miliband reminds me of when I was in Aldi and found this squashy CBeebies thing on the floor that a baby had dropped. Everyone had trod its face to bits, but it still had this big smile, maybe because it knew somebody loved it.

    What is a coalition?

    It’s when two cars bump into each other, but not so badly that anyone’s dead.

    How do you get “brain fade”?

    It’s when you get a fact wrong and realise afterwards that you have done it. I have never had one of those. Actually, I have once.

    Who has been the best in the debates?

    The Scotch woman seemed to go down quite well. I think she’d make a good prime minister if one day we ever let women do that.

    Who are you voting for and why?

    I’m voting tactically. Like when more people voted for the upside-down dancers than voted for Susan Boyle, but she still got to be the most famous for a bit. So I’m walking proudly into that dry wooden shower-like thing at the primary school and putting my cross in the Tactical party box.

    Charlie Brooker’s Election Wipe is on Wednesday 6 May on BBC2, 9pm.
