    Lol, the little fir tree in a dream state of vanity wakes and becomes content with itself only to be harvested as a Christmas tree.

    re fir tree: Didnīt notice that, but agree totally with you. I think that either virtue sometimes brings curious rewards or the poet, in this case is of the opinion that been used as a Christmas tree is a honor and a reward in itself.

    "The Vision of the Fawn...". Petrarca at his cutest!. Was however a bit bewildered by the difference between both translations. I was a bit shocked, when, in the first rendition, the poet suddenly falls into the water. Sort of comic twist at the end. But in the second he merely awakes to reality.

    ... the other was a bit disheartening
