Calabrian love poem

U Specchiu

L'immagine tua ntra u specchiu

E la poesia mia chiù bella.

Ma fa subitu ca se cancellari

E l'ultimu mio ti amo !

Translated into Calabrese by Isabella
L'immagine tua ntra u specchiu  E la poesia mia chiù bella.  Ma fa subitu ca se cancellari  E l'ultimu mio ti amo.

Calabria

Calabria is a poor land, in the extreme south-west of Italy which faces Sicily. Since the 19th century it is a region with a strong emigration. In the Mycenaean era, sailors from Greece approached the Italian coast. The first Greek establishment in southern Italy was that of the Euboeans coming from Eretria, who settled on Pithecus (Ischia) island around 770 BC.
