Obsession with Time

The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock

i. S’io credesse che mia risposta fosse
ii. A persona che mai tornasse al mondo
iii. Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse
iv. Ma percioche giammai di questo fondo
v. Non torno vivo alcun, s’i’odo il vero
vi. Senza tema d’infamia ti rispondo

If I but thought one response were made
To one perhaps returning to the world
This tongue of flame would cease to flicker
But since, up from these depths
No one has yet returned alive, if I hear true
Without fear of infamy, I’ll answer
