Post unidentified poem any idea who or where it originated from?
:welcome: hi all,
I be a newbie here so thanks for your time and I apologise ahead of time if I cross any unknown lines!

This poem is supposed to be a love poem but I can not truly make sense out of it? Was it written in a different language then translated? I wad thinking Italian? The very last sentence "Venetian Bauta" is that a name of author or just the indication of the type of masquerade mask possibly related to the poem???
Looking for title author place of origin and meaning :shock: :P
kudos and a free hotel room here at my hotel for any help lol :clap: :appl:

Me pity, that now winter of
And mosquitoes are not heard in the house,
But you reminded me.
About the frivolous straw.

Dragonflies hovering in the blue,
And swallow spinning fashion;
Basket on the head
Or pompous ode?

To advise I do not undertake,
And useless excuses,
But whipped cream is eternal taste
And the smell of orange peel.

You're making a big deal out of it.,
From this better position not worse,
What to do: the most gentle mind
The entire is placed outside.

And you're trying yolk.
Whipping angry spoon,
He's white, he's exhausted.
And all -??? still get back a little…

And, right, not your fault, —
What and inside out?
You as on purpose created
For a Comedy show.

In you all teases, all sings,
Like Italian roulade.
And a little cherry mouth.
Dry asks for grapes.

So don't try to be smart.,
In you all a fad, all minute,
The shadow of your beanie —
Venetian Bauta.


Cheers

Post Re: unidentified poem any idea who or where it originated from?
Sorry, no idea! It sounds dialectical to me. "Venetian Bauta" is a type of cloak, I take it. Since the poem has four-line stanzas, V B is a line. It's strange the writer used that regular form while paying no attention at all to common syntax. Did he/she have a method here, kind of like throwing paint on a canvas a la Jackson Pollack? It's a fun poem to read, has surprising juxtapositions.

I'm going to move this thread over to the A Passion for Poetry forum where some of our poetry fans might be able to help.
