A turbulent breeze smothers her canvas sails
Grazing her maple mast with a sugary kiss
Pushing her along, forward in raucous bliss
Forlorn for the open sea, held with sturdy nails
Her shiny surface glistening in foamy trails.
The salty air, a smell you couldn't miss
When her oars splashed with a delicate hiss
That tickles the ear like a siren's gales.
The sun's rays glimmer warmth upon the ocean –
Like a million stars flickering in my eyes,
She rides hurricanes with such elegant motion
Slipping up and down the waves under moonlit skies
With constellations guiding her and the boatman
To the precious buried treasure, a golden prize.
Here is an Italian sonnet for all of my fellow poetry enthusiasts. I would have written it in actual Italian if I knew how to. Thought about using Google Translate, but then remembered that it doesn't translate correctly. If you know anyone that can translate this to Italian please send them my way. Enjoy!
