TESTO DEL LIED"Now finalè to the shore"
di Walt Whitman (1819-1892)
Now finalè to the shore,
Now land and life finalè and farewell,
Now Voyager depart, (much, much for thee is yet in store,)
Often enough has thou adventur'd o'er the seas,
Cautiously cruising - studying the charts,
Duly again to port and hawser's the returning;
But now obey thy cherish'd secret wish,
Embrace thy friends, leave all in order,
To port and hawser's tie no returning,
Depart upon thy endless cruise old Sailor.
