FEELING AT HOME

From the time he was a little boy he
breathed the olive tree scented air.
Here he was born
and here he lived in one
of the farm houses in the estate.
Like his father he too worked for
the Coriicelli family.
In summer the corn was placed
to dry in a heap that reached
one of the terraces
from which he jumped
rolling towards the future.
