ABOUT
ho baciato l'alba d'estate.

nulla si muoveva ancora sul frontone dei palazzi. l'acqua era morta. gli accampamenti d'ombre non lasciavano la strada del bosco. ho camminato, ridestando gli aliti vivi e tiepidi; e le gemme guardarono, e le ali s'alzarono senza rumore.

la prima impresa fu, nel sentiero già pieno di freschi e pallidi splendori, un fiore che mi disse il suo nome.

risi alla cascata che si scapigliò attraverso gli abeti: sulla cima argentata ravvisai la dea.

allora sollevai a uno a uno i veli. nel viale, agitando le braccia. per la pianura, dove l'ho annunciata al gallo. nella grande città, ella fuggiva tra i campanili e le cupole; e, correndo come un mendicante sulle banchine di marmo, io le davo la caccia.

in cima alla strada, presso un bosco di lauri, l'ho avvolta nei suoi veli ammassati e ho sentito un poco il suo immenso corpo. l'alba e il fanciullo caddero ai piedi dei bosco.

al risveglio, era mezzogiorno.

The cover of Pink Floyd’s Meddle is difficult for some to determine what exactly they are looking at, especially as cover art has gone from LP sleeves to CD inserts and finally to MP3 thumbnails on smartphone screens. It’s an extreme close-up of an ear superimposed by rippling waves of water. The idea for the cover came from the band, who were on tour in Japan and could only describe it to Storm Thorgerson by international phone call. (Storm’s original idea was a close-up photo of a baboon’s ass, which the band overruled.) Although he delivered something resembling what the Floyd had asked for, Storm was dissatisfied with the result. He said “I think Meddle is a much better album than its cover,” and his Hipgnosis partner Aubrey Powell agreed, “I don’t think we did them justice with that at all; it’s half-hearted.”

“The so-called ‘rational foundation for morality’ that philosophers have tried to supply was merely a scholarly variation of the common faith in the prevalent morality.”
