Un' ultima traduzione de Limoni di Eugenio Montale, fatta prendendo spunto dalle traduzioni del precedente post:

Listen, laureate poets

just wander amid the plants

whose names are rare: boxus, ligustrum or acanthus.

I prefer instead small country-roads that open onto

the green ditches where, in half-dry puddles,

boys snatch some skinny eels:

the lanes that follow the edges,

slope trough the clumps of cane

And lead down to the orchards, among the lemon trees.

o anche

(Leading to the orchards, among the lemon grove.)

Eugenio Montale
