I think this is an Italian sonnet written by a talented young man who was to die in battle fighting for the Allies before the US officially joined the war, as he was living in Paris at the time; he'd been the roommate of T.S. Eliot back at college in the states. Interestingly, he is the uncle of the great American folk singer Pete Seeger.

this poem tells a very crucial tale to the man who almost ruled it all.
