Hello everybody! I am urgently looking for an english version of Leopardi's poem "La Ginestra", there is a whole verse quoted in a translation I am handling (a conference paper) and if possible I would like to add the english version. I have searched online and found many versions of other poems by Leopardi but not "La Ginestra". I certainly don't feel up to translating poetry, and I'm sure some great poets or writers have already worked on this.
Thanks in advance

Here on the barren spine
Of the stupendous mountain,
That destructor, Vesuvius,
(...)

Sounds great.
