Ed è subito sera

Only 3 lines but my all time favourite Italian poem. I wrote my master’s thesis on Salvatore Quasimodo because I was intrigued by his life and his poetry. That curiosity started during my first year of Italian studies at university, when we read this exceptional poem.

Ognuno sta solo sul cuor della terra
trafitto da un raggio di Sole:
ed è subito sera.

Salvatore Quasimodo
