Petru Guelfucci - Corsica (English translation)
In a corner of the world
There's a small place of tenderness
Inside my heart, majestic
Its purity is overwhelming
Don't look for anything like it
you won't find its peer
It's unique, alone and dear.
It always provokes so much envy
This piece of rock in the middle of the sea
Sacred as an altar.
Calm, sweet like a lamb
Generous and welcoming
Yet stubborn and rebellious
If one despises its people.
