    "La pioggia nel pineto" by Gabriele D'Annunzio
    Taci.
    Su le soglie
    del bosco non odo
    parole che dici umane;
    ma odo parole più nuove
    che parlano gocciole e foglie lontane.
    (...) E piove
    su i nostri volti silvani,
    piove su le nostre mani
    ignude,
    su i nostri vestimenti leggeri,
    su i freschi pensieri
    che l’anima schiude novella,
    su la favola bella
    che ieri m’illuse,
    che oggi t’illude,
    o Ermione.
