AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Happy birthday, Tasso.


Torquato Tasso was born on this date in 1544.

Now the waves murmur
And the boughs and the shrubs tremble
in the morning breeze,
And on the green branches the pleasant birds
Sing softly
And the east smiles;
Now dawn already appears
And mirrors herself in the sea,
And makes the sky serene,
And the gentle frost impearls the fields
And gilds the high mountains:
O beautiful and gracious Aurora,
The breeze is your messenger, and you the breeze's
Which revives each burnt-out heart. 


Torquato Tasso

Thank you, Dr. Richardson
