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 advanceicon_smile.gif

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

Sounds great.
