To be once again on the road again also means facing the cold with a smile. An open-air statement that can get you anywhere wherever your heart feels alive, keeping you warm, burning like a bright bonfire. Always on the move they are, these children of the night.
Embroidered leather jacket and printed shirt ANTONIO MARRAS.
(an extract, by A. S. Pushkin / 1827)
Like freedom is their sojourn there,
Under the skies in the midnight air.
Between the wheels of the drawn up carts,
Half covered with carpets thrown across
The bonfire glimmers. The family starts
To prepare a meal. On the steppe nearby
The horses pasture; behind the tents
The tame bear sleeps with an open eye.
In the vasty steppes all is noisy and lively:
The gypsy family’s anxiety
Since the early morn on their short planned journey,
The children’s cries and the women’s singing,
And the sound of the travelling anvil’s ringing.
But now upon their nomadic camp
Descends a sleepy silentness
And the only sounds in the steppe’s quietness
Are the barking of dogs and the horses’ neighs.
The fires everywhere are all put out,
All is at peace, the solitary moon
Shines from the summit of the skies
And brightens the encampment with its rays.
