Gift for my friend Heidi :iconheidi137:

Many thanks to :iconaeirmid: for the daily deviation ! It's great from your part ! :D :D :hug:

This work is inspired by the poem of Giacomo Leopardi, called "The Infinite" :

This solitary hill has always been dear to me                               
And this hedge, which prevents me from seeing most of
The endless horizon.
But when I sit and gaze, I imagine, in my thoughts,
Endless spaces beyond the hedge,
An all encompassing silence and a deeply profound quiet,
To the point that my heart is quite overwhelmed.
And when I hear the wind rustling through the trees
I compare its voice to the infinite silence.
And eternity occurs to me, and all the ages past,
And the present time, and its sound.
Amidst this immensity my thought drowns:
And to flounder in this sea is sweet to me.

French version :

Toujours elle me fut chère cette colline solitaire
et cette haie qui dérobe au regard
tant de pans de l'extrême horizon.
Mais demeurant assis et contemplant,
au-delà d'elle, dans ma pensée j'invente
des espaces illimités, des silences surhumains
et une quiétude profonde ; où peu s'en faut
que le cœur ne s'épouvante.
Et comme j'entends le vent
bruire dans ces feuillages, je vais comparant
ce silence infini à cette voix :
en moi reviennent l'éternel,
et les saisons mortes et la présente
qui vit, et sa sonorité. Ainsi,
dans cette immensité, se noie ma pensée :
et le naufrage m'est doux dans cette mer.
