Val di Non

August 5, 2022

This week, I am presenting a short poem written in Italian in the year 2000. Over twenty years on, this is still the defining poem of my experiences in Italy. For the rest of my poetry, please read my anthology Prescriptions from the Rhyme Doctor.

Val Di Non

© 2000 Allen E. Rizzi

Dove i laghi alpini incontrano le stelle

E l’aroma dolce dei fiori delle mele

Sorga incontrare i picchi pallidi;

Dove alberi alti arrivano al cielo

E le voci della famiglia parlano

Leggermente in tutte le età;

Questo è e sempre sarà

Il Val di Non.

PS – This poem was also used in my recent novella, Chiara.
