about

Elegia
Poetry by Edoardo di Giovanni
Composed by Laura Bishop
Featuring the vocal talents of the whole band. Piano - Laura B

lyrics

Di te cio che resta é un ricordo
il tempo ha dorato le spighe
e bruciato le stoppie sui campi
rossa ha fatto la vigna e nudo l’albero
sui monti ha messo neve
e fatto scuro il mare

Ma non ricorda il prato ne il canneto
io solo ricordo
e il sale del mio rimorso brucia e fa amara la bocca

Elegia

What remains of you is a memory
the time has turned the corn ears golden
and burned the stubble on the fields
reddened the vineyards and made the trees bare,
put snow on the mountains and darkened the sea.

But the time does not remember the corn fields
only I remember
and the taste of my remorse is bitter and burns my mouth.

Elegy.
