CHAPTER I
PRIVATE LETTERS 1838 - 1839

Collins has this instant sent me the new almanack. It is hardly worth while to look into it. I know already what it will not tell me, that the coming year will be without its spring. Did Mama ever let you into the secret that she sometimes writes Italian poetry ? She wrote these about midnight on the
Friday.

I PENSIERI DI MADIA.(1)
Si, reposa la mia Rosa !
La mattina pallidina
Segnera per infelice ;
Chi sa, chi sa, quanti amici !
Sosterranno dire addio
Tutti quelli-ma non io.

I never prided myself on my talents for translation, so that I have attempted to give the following as much the air of an original as possible.

Calmly fall the night's repose
On your eyelids, blessed Rose !
When pale morning shines again,
it will shine on bitter pain.
Friends who see you go away
(Ah how many friends !) will say,
" Blessed Rose! adieu : adieu!"
I may bear to say it too ...
But alas! when far from you.

1 These Italian verses, with a slight alteration, were printed in the " Book of Beauty," 1847, and were Landor's own, notwithstanding the fact that on another ooccasin he attributed them to a mythical Italian poet.
