As if I walked in a dream

Far from the world’s market and its colorful life
Lies, inconspicuous and simple,
A land left to the mercy of the waves
That break foamingly on its banks.

I will always keep a faithful love
For this small, sea-wet island:
It is the land where once, many years ago
My cradle stood;

Where I lived the most beautiful time
Where I laughed and played and felt engulfed
by endless love and happiness,
Until homeless I went abroad.

Though it seems a patch of earth forsaken
Small and insignificant to the eye,
It can grasp the deepest misery
And can carry the highest happiness.

I am often drawn to the small island,
And seeking peace, I rush to it.
The memories strong chains
Tie my heart to it.

Today I stood there again and looked
Out to the sea, listening to its sound,
That, not interrupted by civilization’s screaming,
Sang its melancholy song to me.

I saw – shivering with fear –
Only pictures of transience.
My little island! I thought with mourning,
So defenseless, so doomed.

Its shores are rugged and torn,
The waves roll into it with greedy lust,
As if the sea is longing to enclose it
And to pull it wildly down to its chest.

How long? – Who raises the seal of the future?
Who will offer answers to me?
Who can stop the mighty wings
Of the all devouring time?

 

Uta Warbaum, the creator of this beautiful island, is a German woman who, according to her own words, does not like very much to be in public. She just wants to build, relax and be left in peace. This peace and relaxation you can really feel on Deja-vu, her truly fascinating, somewhat melancholy island. It fills me with a dreamy sensation of – yes – of deja-vu! Thank you Uta for that wonderful place.

Deja-vu, Craft-World is worth a visit and a long, long stay,
says Tosha Tyran…

 

Dor het wen püttjert!

Ick bün alltiet verbaast, wat för wunnerschööne Oort in Craft wen finnen kunn, wenn hei odder sei bloots nipp un nau kieken deit!

Vanacht to ’n Bispill bün  ick to “Medieval Castle” komen – un dat hett een ole Minne-Leed in mün Kopp brocht. Dat Leed is plattdütsk – also de Rest van de Text ook!Dat du min Leevsten büst, dat du woll weeßt.
Kumm bi de Nacht, kumm bi de Nacht, segg wo du heeßt;
kumm bi de Nacht, kumm bi de Nacht, segg wo du heeßt.
Kumm du üm Middernacht, kumm du Klock een!
Vader slöpt, Moder slöpt, ick slap aleen;
Vader slöpt, Moder slöpt, ick slap aleen.
Klopp an de Kammerdör, fat an de Klink!
Vader meent, Moder meent, dat deit de Wind;
Vader meent, Moder meent, dat deit de Wind.Kumm to de Kammer rin, swieg ok fien still,
links steiht een Schapp, rechts steiht een Schapp, meern steiht dat Bett;
links steiht een Schapp, rechts steiht een Schapp, meern steiht dat Bett.
Gah op dat Bett hento, liesen un still,
baben liggt een Deck, ünnen liggt een Deck, meern dat bün ick;
baben liggt een Deck, ünnen liggt een Deck, meern dat bün ick.
Wenn du nich kommen magst, lat dat man blieven,
fief ohn di, fief ohn di, kann ick wohl kreegen;
fief ohn di, fief ohn di, kann ick wohl kreegen.Kummt denn de Morgenstund, kreiht de ol Hahn.
Leevster min Leevster min, denn mößt du gahn!
Leevster min Leevster min, denn mößt du gahn!
Sachen den Gang henlank, lies mit de Klink!
Vader meent, Moder meent, dat deit de Wind;
Vader meent, Moder meent, dat deit de Wind.Nun wieder hochdeutsch – platt ist auf die Dauer zu anstrengend… Aber
Hab ich nicht Recht?

PS: Ok, ok, für alle des Plattdeutschen NICHT mächtigen, hier die Übersetzung ins Hochdeutsch:
Titel: Da hat aber jemand gearbeitet!
Text: Ich bin immer wieder überrascht, was für wunderschöne Orte in Craft zu finden sind, wenn man nur richtig guckt.
Gestern Nacht z.B. bin ich im “Medieval Castle” gewesen – und sogleich fiel mir ein altes Liebeslied ein – das Lied ist auf Plattdeutsch, also der Rest des Textes auch.
Kurze Erklärung zum Lied: Das Lied ist mit Sicherheit nicht so alt, wie so eine Ritterburg – aber es ist einfach mein Lieblingslied und so habe ich beschlossen, es mit euch zu teilen.
Hier ein Link

El mundo es un lugar bastante pequeño


Ο κόσμος είναι ένα αρκετά μικρό μέρος
Μη σκέφτεσαι το μέλλον
Δεν θα αργήσει
Χανόμαστε
Δεν πειράζει
Βρίσκονται άλλοι
(Νίκος Ερηνάκης)

(…)
El mundo es un lugar bastante pequeño
No pienses en el futuro
Que no tardará en venir
Perecemos
Pero no importa
Habrá otros
(Nikos Erinakis)

Hay un lugar nuevo en Craft: La sim Honebu, junto a la grande dama “The Black Angel”, el crucero de Licu Rau yTao Quan con un sinfin de rincones sorprendientes – de cabinas lujosas a una suite de luna de miel, una discoteca y sitios para relajar y – vamos, ¡demasiado para contarlo aquí!Ahora, en Honebu hay un pueblito griego en el mar, con un puerto pequñito, un bar llamativo, un hotel de cinco estrellas y con piscina de agua de mar. Partiendo del crucero llegas directamente por un caminito lindo al hotel sí así deseas o te paseas un ratito en la promenada del pueblo con palmeras y flores llegando al Μπαρ από το λιμάνι, el bar del puerto. Y – naturalmente – al mismo puerto con sus molinos de viento tradicionales.Ten cuidado de no tomar demasiado, porque una gran parte del pueblo está en la montaña – es decir ¡escaleras, escaleras, escaleras! Escaleras demasiado peligrosas para subir y bajar borracho…Pero antes de atacar las escaleras igual daremos una vuelta por el centro del pueblo. ¡Acción salva-piernas! y veremos que se puede discubrir aquí.Empezamos en la plaza central con el Δημαρχείο, el ayuntamiento de nuestro pueblito.Ah, casi me olvidé: También en el centro del pueblo hay una que otra escalera…Y gatos… Porque según nuestra amiga Maria los griegos aman a los gatos porque les protejen contra los serpientes. ¿Será verdad? Yo por lo menos soy mas familiar con los gatos que comen ratones. Pero como todo el mundo sabe: lugares diferentes, maneras diferentes. Bueno, y ahora ¡al ataque! 


Os deseamos una feliz y divertida visita en una Grecia sin problemas económicas, sin bancos internacionales y sin governadores corruptos… algo es algo!

PS: Dentro de pocos días todas los artículos, que por supuesto son todos mesh,  de Honebu serán libres de copiar par quien sea.

 

Alle reden vom Wetter…

… ich nicht!

Ich wollt’, ich wär’ des Sturmes Weib,
Es sollte mir nicht grausen,
Auf Felsenhöhen wohnt ich dann,
Dort, wo die Adler hausen.

Die Sonne wäre mein Gespiel,
Die Winde meine Knappen,
Mit dem Gemahl führ’ ich dahin
Auf flücht’gem Wolkenrappen.

Frei würd’ ich sein und stolz und groß,
Die Königin der Ferne,
Tief unter mir die dumpfe Welt
Und über mir die Sterne!

Aber so einfach geht das nicht, des Sturmes Weib zu werden. Also musste ich mir flugs was anderes einfallen lassen – die viele Sonne geht mir auf’s Gemüt. Und so habe meine Ski eingepackt, die Schlittschuh nicht vergessen und bin für ein paar Tage in die Berge – Montes – gegangen.

Köstlich! Nur Schnee und Kälte, schroffe Felsen und eiskaltes Wasser – das kühlt das Mütchen… Der Himmel grau verhangen, da hat die Sonne nicht die kleinste Chance, das Leben in eine gleißende Hölle zu tauchen. Übrigens: das Pünktchen zwischen Himmel und Erde ist Tosha, die Himmelsstürmerin!

Nicht nur das Mütchen will bekanntlich gekühlt sein, sondern auch die Füße. Da kam mir dieser reißende Strom mit eiskaltem Wasser gerade recht… Die Stiefel fanden das zwar doof – aber wenn kümmert das?

Noch ein kurzer Blick in die Tiefe und dann: Her mit den Ski!

Aber dann schien mir der Berg doch etwas reichlich hoch. Und außerdem hatte ich die Ski-Stiefel vergessen. Dann lieber eine Runde Schlittschuh laufen.

Mitten beim allerschönsten Pirouette üben fing es mit einem Mal richtig ernsthaft zu schneien an. Brrr… So hatte ich das eigentlich nicht vorgestellt.

Als der Schnee sich zu einem wahren Schneesturm auswuchs, habe ich dann doch entschieden, mich lieber in die Hütte zurück zu ziehen und schön Käffchen zu trinken. Wer weiß, was hier noch so alles auf mich wartete…

Hmmm, auf den Latin Lover habe ich allerdings vergeblich gewartet – hat mich doch glatt versetzt. Maldición! Dann wiederum – man hört ja auch so einiges von diesen Herren. Vielleicht war es ja gut so!

Noch ein letzter – einsamer – Blick auf das eisige Panorama und ich fühlte mich wieder für Sonne, Strand, Wellen und Meer gestärkt. Tschö, Montes! Tschö, ihr Berge und schneige Höhen!

Montes ist ein Teil von “Mainland Craft” und wurde von Licu Rau gebaut.

Prim Love and other Delicious Things

I think it is time to get serious now: let’s talk about love. No, no, not that kind of stuff, people think of, when they look at a beautiful sky or a sunset or a puppy dog or a baby. Let’s not think in civilized terms, but gigantomanically—

Yo no quiero un amor civilizado
Con recibos y escena del sofá
Yo no quiero que viajes al pasado
Y vuelvas del mercado con ganas de llorar
Yo no quiero vecinas con pucheros
Yo no quiero sembrar ni compartir
No quiero catorce de Febrero
Ni cumpleaños feliz

Yo no quiero domingo por la tarde
Yo no quiero columpio en el jardí­n
Lo que yo quiero corazón cobarde
Es que mueras por mí­
Y morirme contigo si te matas
Y matarme contigo si te mueres
Porque el amor cuando no muere mata
Porque amores que matan nunca mueren
(Joaquín Sabina)
Let’s talk about REAL LOVE – about PRIM LOVE!

Prims – for those of you who only know mesh and maybe the not so glorious predecessors sculpties – are those plain looking cubes of even plainer plywood texture, that one can rezz and pull around, make them a little longer, stack them and, for the daring: even deform them. But really build with them?Let me assure you: you can! Well, if you can, you can… And if you cannot, you can learn. And it is even fun. Building inworld can be very joyous, because you might work with friends, who can advice you, criticize you, make you laugh, make you think, make you reconsider your building. Oh well, they can also get on your nerves, true. But at least you have the choice of telling them to get lost! Building in Blender*, alone with your PC and perhaps your dog or cat, all you can do is curse the computer, eat some more potatoe chips, kick you dog or scream into the empty room. Oops, now we are getting very close to the subject – the Taj Mahal  is an ivory-white marble post mortum love declaration. It is a mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. It was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (reigned from 1628 to 1658), to house the tomb of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The tomb is the centrepiece of a 17-hectare (42-acre) complex, which includes a mosque and a guest house, and is set in formal gardens bounded on three sides by a crenellated wall. With othr words: a love-crazy emperor gone gaga…The Taj Mahal was constructed using materials from all over India and Asia. It is believed over 1,000 elephants were used to transport building materials. The translucent white marble was brought from Makrana, Rajasthan, the jasper from Punjab, jade and crystal from China. The turquoise was from Tibet and the Lapis lazuli from Afghanistan, while the sapphire came from Sri Lanka and the carnelian from Arabia. In all, twenty-eight types of precious and semi-precious stones were inlaid into the white marble. It took about 22 years to complete it – and Shah Jahan and the whole region was pretty much ruined financially afterwards.Now admittedly, the building of the Taj Mahal in Virtual Worlds was not quite as expensive, the 1.000 elephants could stay at home and enjoy their long walks through the savannah, no workers were mal treated, abused or let alone killed. All of which actually speaks for Virtual Worlds and for prims! And at this point also for love. The love of prims!

From Ivory Tower to Ivory City – Love that won’t end

A very special kind of prim love you can find in the second example: Lumiere Noir’s love for twisting and bending prims so that in the end no one would believe they were born simple cubes, tubes, cylinders or tori!In Real Life an artist, photographer and finally a very dedicated teacher, he brought much of his knowledge and his passions into Virtual Worlds.

Of course he started building and figuring out the things one can do with prims from the very beginning. Lumiere the artist created things of astonishing beauty – he twisted prims as probably only he knew how to. And for Lumiere the teacher it was the most natural thing wanting to share his newly acquired knowledge with others. So he built his very well known Ivory Tower Library of Primitives in SL in which – without exaggeration – probably thousands of avatars learned how to build.

When – after some years he learned about OpenSim and the fascinating new possibilities of building here, he got loads of regions and started to experiment, what he could do here. And of course it was not too long that Lumiere started to build a replica of his Ivory Tower also in OpenSim (in Craft-World). But by now he wanted more – he got bored with his first tower, it was too much of what he had already made, he wanted something new – and something very much bigger. He talked about moving his project to Sanctuary, the small but well cared for Grid of Shaun Emerald.That is how this huge and wonderful project got started here. And he truly proved to be the grand master of prim twisting.

The beauty of the builds is awesome and of course – it would not be a true “Lumiere” without – it has autodidactive lessons inside, that start from rezzing  a first prim and leads you in the end right to his great and famous twisted stairs – with plenty examples of his prim twisting art.

So go, visit, look, fall in love, experiment, let your imagination run wild… With other words, do as Sabina sings: don’t settle for a civilized love, one with bills and sundays on the sofa! Go for the love that kills you! Because a love that does not die with passion kills. And because a love that kills never dies!

Ah, and while you are there, don’t forget to check out the very beautiful sim Eld of Shaun Emerald. It has  the probably most complete collection of Hypergrid-Gates ever. In terms of the before said: you will love it!

who loves you all (now see how you get along with THAT!)

 

Dies alles ist mir untertänig…

Er stand auf seines Daches Zinnen,
Er schaute mit vergnügten Sinnen
Auf das beherrschte Samos hin.
»Dies alles ist mir untertänig«,
Begann er zu Ägyptens König,
»Gestehe, daß ich glücklich bin.«

»Du hast der Götter Gunst erfahren!
Die vormals deinesgleichen waren,
Sie zwingt jetzt deines Szepters Macht.
Doch einer lebt noch, sie zu rächen,
Dich kann mein Mund nicht glücklich sprechen,
Solang des Feindes Auge wacht.«

Und eh der König noch geendet,
Da stellt sich, von Milet gesendet,
Ein Bote dem Tyrannen dar:
»Laß, Herr! des Opfers Düfte steigen
Und mit des Lorbeers muntern Zweigen
Bekränze dir dein festlich Haar.

Getroffen sank dein Feind vom Speere,
Mich sendet mit der frohen Märe
Dein treuer Feldherr Polydor –«
Und nimmt aus einem schwarzen Becken,
Noch blutig, zu der beiden Schrecken,
Ein wohlbekanntes Haupt hervor.

(…)

Und wenn’s die Götter nicht gewähren,
So acht auf eines Freundes Lehren
Und rufe selbst das Unglück her,
Und was von allen deinen Schätzen
Dein Herz am höchsten mag ergötzen,
Das nimm und wirf’s in dieses Meer.«

 

Und jener spricht, von Furcht beweget:
»Von allem, was die Insel heget,
Ist dieser Ring mein höchstes Gut.
Ihn will ich den Erinnen weihen,
Ob sie mein Glück mir dann verzeihen.«
Und wirft das Kleinod in die Flut.

 

Und bei des nächsten Morgens Lichte,
Da tritt mit fröhlichem Gesichte
Ein Fischer vor den Fürsten hin:
»Herr, diesen Fisch hab ich gefangen,
Wie keiner noch ins Netz gegangen,
Dir zum Geschenke bring ich ihn.«

Und als der Koch den Fisch zerteilet,
Kommt er bestürzt herbeigeeilet
Und ruft mit hocherstauntem Blick:
»Sieh, Herr, den Ring, den du getragen,
Ihn fand ich in des Fisches Magen,
O, ohne Grenzen ist dein Glück!«

Hier wendet sich der Gast mit Grausen:
»So kann ich hier nicht ferner hausen,
Mein Freund kannst du nicht weiter sein.
Die Götter wollen dein Verderben,
Fort eil ich, nicht mit dir zu sterben.«
Und sprachs und schiffte schnell sich ein.

(Aus: Der Ring des Polykrates, F. Schiller)

Violence against Women!

You are not my story / But merely a chapter
One I will never forget / But one I will never reread

The bruises you left will no longer / Remind me of my shortcomings
But will instead be battle scares / Reminding me of my strength

You caused me to starve / You caused me to self-loathe
You caused me to isolate myself / But your control is not permanent

I will erase the pain you left / I will discard the memories
Of discomfort, fear, and embarassment / And replace them with a fire

I am not your victim / Or defined by your abuse
I am a survivor / I am a fighter

For so long I blamed myself / Told myself that I deserved the pain
That I did this to myself / And I carried that guilt with me

But not anymore / I’m through with wrongfully assigning
The blame to myself when / It’s nobody’s fault except yours

Your time is up / From your violations
I have gained self-respect and fortitude / And you have gained a guilty conscience

This is all I have left to say to you / My final testimony, my triumph
I will no longer let you have power over me / This is goodbye.

Delicatessen (160,92,485) by Paper White
contains the best exposition about Violence against Women I have ever seen in Virtual Worlds.

It takes a hard stomach though to look through it!

Torben Asp – master of the spherical music

you ambled through
the spheres of light
a score of
fireflies ignite
a silken dress
a velvet night
roaring colors
spheres of light
a
I would like to talk to you tonight about a very special person: Torben Asp, composer, musician, artist and surely one of the nicest live performers I know and have the honor to be friended with. Those who come to his shows will find themselves immersed not only in spherical sounds but also in a captivating and magic particles show.

Already entering his performance center is interesting: you enter a metal sphere hung up in nowhere and held down from escaping just there by some chained weights…

Sit on one of the seats grouped around the stage in the middle, lean back, take a sip of wine (or tea or a sniff of grass :-)) and let Torben with his music and particles do the rest! An enrapturing time is garanteed…

Torben was amiable enough to give us a little inside view into his music, his work, his life.

Tosha: Torben, you make music in virtual worlds and – if I understand right – also in real life?

Torben: That is true… I have been so lucky to build a network that stretches from virtual- to Real life.

Tosha: I know of various artists who actually began their career in virtual worlds and from there went on to real life careers – where did you get started?

Torben: Basically I began composing at 14 when I bought my first little keyboard. My Dad played one of my tunes at the local stadium for 2500 people… that was kinda crazy.
Obviously when PC music software came out it made it easier for me to make music…. and yes… SL and the virtual worlds have helped me a lot… To refine my performances… and also to be able to play in the real world a couple of times… both in Denmark and the USA.

Tosha: You underlay your musical performances in Craft with all those magnificent particles – what do you use in real life instead? Or have you found a way to create „real“ particles???

Torben: Oh I wish… but in real Life we mostly use projections… which is kinda nice too.

Tosha: Can your music be found in real life? Meaning: do you sell it?

Torben:  I do… You can find me at CDBaby.com searching for Torben Asp but also on all the well known download sites.

Tosha: Do you give concerts in RL?

Torben:  When I get a chance, yes.

Tosha: A rather indiscrete question: You probably spend a lot of time with your music. But can you live of it? (Don’t answer if it is too indiscrete!)

Torben:  No… at this time its only a hobby that I love…. so I gather all the tips I can get… Either inworld ore by going my website or Paypal ;o)

Tosha: Your music has quite an esoteric sound at times. Are you an esoteric person?

Torben:  I believe so… My music comes from inside…. when I try to be deep I always say… From my soul… To your soul.

Tosha: Do you compose and produce your music alone?

Torben:  Yes I do…. No one to argue with… hehe

Tosha: I seem to detect some Jean Michel Jarre at times in your music – what or who else inspires you most and in which way?

Torben: Jean-Michel Jarre as you mentioned… but also Hans Zimmer,  Schiller and Kitaro. (French, German and Japanese musicians, T.T.)

Tosha: I know you are Danish living in the USA now – what made you leave Denmark?

Torben:  I blame it on my 10 year long love for Jess ;o)

Tosha: Back to Virtual Worlds: During the last performances of yours I have noticed that you are becoming quite a master of the art of creating particles… do you create them yourself?

Torben:  No… as I sometimes tell on stream my particle show was created by a very talented scripter, Darek Deluca, who unfortunately is not in SL anymore.
Luckily I got him to deliver to me in the worlds I perform in the most… and then it is just to find the right setup for the experience… and I think I am pretty close now to have the perfect setup…. at least people seem to enjoy it a lot.

Tosha: What difference is there for you performing for a virtual audience as opposed to a real life one?

Torben:  You feel the audience more in Real Life…. and you can see when they start to fall asleep…. In the virtual worlds I get all these wonderful comments… and I try to mix them into my comments between tunes.

Tosha: I have the feeling, there is a special attachment to Craft Grid. Am I wrong or is that so?

Torben: The reception we got when we first landed in Craft was over the top… so we have always loved to support the grid when ever we could.

Tosha: If yes – what makes Craft special to you?

Torben:  The option that you have almost 100% power over your region… and you can import and export your OAR’s when you have something to show.

Tosha: Thanks a lot for your patience, Torben!

Torben:  Thank you for the interest. I appreciate that ;o))

If you want to come, see, hear, feel one of Torben’s performances, check the Craft Homepage regularly, read inworld notes or recurr to Torben’s own homepage to find a date! And – as said before: lean back and enjoy!

The Craft-Store

Fiore all’occhiello di Craft, il Craft-Store rientra probabilmente tra le sim più visitate nel metaverso.

Un mega-store appena alle spalle di Hydra. Le due sim sono collegate tra loro da un ponte. Il ponte nella psiche umana può rappresentare l’unione di due ambienti distaccati, la voglia di avvicinare ed espandere. Mi piace pensare che la scelta di creare un ponte che unisce Hydra a Craft-Store non sia casuale, ma rappresenti la volontà di azzerare le distanze tra utenti e owner. Ogni craftiano può arricchire con le proprie creazioni lo store ufficiale di Craft, rendendosi partecipe in prima persona dell’evoluzione della grid.

Per molti anni, il Craft-Store ha ospitato una bellissima struttura realizzata da Moran Demedici. Struttura che rimarrà sempre nei ricordi dei vecchi utenti di tutta opensim, ed in particolare nel cuore dei craftiani.

Cito le parole con cui Licu Rau ha salutato il vecchio Craft-Store:

“Sunset over the old Craft-Store.
Bye bye old shop.
From next Monday the old Craft-Store will be replaced by the new one. Thanks to Moran Demedici who buit the old Craft-Store and special thanks to Tosha Tyran who realised the new one.”

The old Craft-Store

Il nuovo Craft-Store è una struttura innovativa e fuori dall’ordinaria concezione di “store”. Gli edifici sono stati sostituiti da un insieme di isole. La sensazione trasmessa è di trovarsi in un ambiente libero, senza percorsi obbligati, porte da aprire, scale da percorrere. Si ha una piena visuale di ciò che ci circonda.

Photograph: Eva Kraai

Il caos che potrebbe crearsi in un ambiente non delineato, è annullato dalla suddivisione delle varie zone in aree di diverso colore. Ogni area contiene una determinata categoria di oggetti gratuiti, area arredamento, area edifici, area avatar (abbigliamento, skin, shape, avatar mesh etc), area musicale.. è possibile trovare ogni genere di cosa tu stia cercando!

Su ogni zona è presente una mappa-teleport dell’intero Craft-Store.

Teleports-map

Nella welcome-area è stata realizzata una zona di ritrovo (i mariti possono sedersi e parlare di calcio mentre le mogli fanno compere) ed un gruppo di donne multirazziali molto affascinanti. Non siate timidi con loro! Sono li per essere cliccate e portarvi in altre sim commerciali di Craft!

Welcome Area – Photograph: Eva Kraai

Non vado oltre nella descrizione, non voglio togliervi ogni sorpresa. Desidero invece spendere qualche parola per parlarvi della persona che ha ideato e realizzato tutto questo, Tosha Tyran. Penso che ci siano persone con un dono particolare nella vita, il dono di “guardare oltre”. Sono quelle persone che riescono a vedere una pecora osservando una nuvola. Tosha vede la pecora, la stalla, il pastore, la casa del pastore, e persino la piccola farfalla che si posa su quell’ultimo fiore, che da li a poco sparirà segnando definitivamente la fine della calda stagione.
