In 1822 he moved to Rome, where he lived mosty among Germans and puboished his collection Canzoni in 1824. Who calls Thee from my dear ones far away?
NO changes have been made to the original text. But his speculative and poetical genius is a permanent illumination. "Sometimes, getting up From the books I loved And those sweat-stained pages Where I spent the best of my youth, I'd lean from the terrace of my father's house Toward the sound of your voice And the quick click of your hands At the heavy loom.

— A wavering of horse and foot, And smoke, and dust, and flashing swords, That like the lightning gleam. Oh, had I, too, been Giacomo Leopardi poems with you, And this dear earth had moistened with my blood! I lay there sleepless in the dawn, and heard those horses, that would leave me lost, stamping their hooves outside my ancestral home.
