Sydney harbour at dawn

Tendono alla chiarità le cose oscure,
si esauriscono i corpi in un fluire
di tinte: queste in musiche. Svanire
è dunque la ventura delle venture.

(Clarity pulls all things obscure,
bodies flow out into coloured varnish:
the colourings then into music – to vanish
should be the greatest adventure for sure.)

Eugenio Montale, 1925
