I Am A Creature

Giuseppe Ungaretti

 Next Poem          

Like this stone of
San Michele

as cold
as hard
as thoroughly dried

as refractory
as deprived of spirit

Like this stone
is my weeping that can't
be seen

Living
discounts death

    I must admit, Ungaretti's work struck me today. His use of the stone at San Michele as a symbol of his emotions is incredibly poignant. His 'weeping that can't be seen', masked by a cold exterior, is something I think we all can relate to on a level. Very thought-provoking 🤔👏.
