Italian term or phrase:Le occasioni (di Montale)
I am translating an art catalogue where the following poem by Montale is quoted:
It is part of the poem collection Occasions (Le Occasioni):
Addii, fischi nel buio, cenni, tosse / e sportelli abbassati. È l’ora. Forse / gli automi hanno ragione. Coma appaiono / dai corridoi, murati! // - Presti anche tu alla fioca / litania del tuo rapido quest’orrida / e fedele cadenza di carioca?
I hope some English-speaking colleague has the translation in English.
Thanks a lot
