Versi scritti fra i Colli Euganei, ottobre 1818 di P.B. SHELLEY


Sotto si stende come un mare verde
senz'onde la pianura della Lombardia,
cinta dall'aria vaporosa,
costellata di belle città;
sotto gli occhi azzurri del giorno,
Venezia giace, beniamina di Oceano,
popoloso labirinto di mura,
sale destinate ad Anfitrite,
che il padre suo canuto ora lastrica
con onde azzurre e luccicanti.
Ecco! il sole sgorga dietro,
vasto, rosso, raggiante, semiadagiato
sull'orizzonte piatto tremolante
delle acque cristalline;
e davanti a quel baratro di luce,
come dentro una fornace ardente,
colonne, torri e guglie e cupole
splendono come obelischi di fuoco
tendendosi con moto incostante
dall'altare dell'oceano oscuro
ai cieli tinti di zaffiro;
come le fiamme del sacrificio
dalle are di marmo s'innalzavano
come per fendere la cupola dorata,
dove Apollo anticamente parlava.

da Versi scritti fra i Colli Euganei, ottobre 1818
di PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY

  3. Non conoscevo questi versi di Shelley, così vibranti di sincera e trasfigurata, ancorché dotta, ammirazione per Venezia, soprattutto, ma anche per quella che era allora una pianura incontaminata dalle opere dell'uomo.

  4. Un estimatore della nostra bella Italia, Shelley.
