Perchè sei vivo? Per sentire.


He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

Had I the heaven’s embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,

I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

William Butler Yeats

Egli desidera il tessuto del cielo

Se avessi il drappo ricamato del cielo,
Intessuto della luce dell’oro e dell’argento,
I drappi dai colori chiari e scuri del giorno e della notte
Dai mezzi colori dell’alba e del tramonto,

Stenderei quei drappi sotto i tuoi piedi:
Ma io, essendo povero, ho soltanto sogni;
Ed i miei sogni ho steso sotto i tuoi piedi;
Cammina leggera, perché cammini sui miei sogni.

  1. Un commento non degno del tuo post, ben lontano dal voler mettere a paragone Yeats a delle teste di limone:

    BEING AROUND
    If I was in the fridge, would you open the door?
    If I was the grass, would you mow your lawn?
    If I was your body, would you still wear clothes?
    If I was a booger, would you blow your nose?
    Would you keep it? Would you eat it?
    I’m just tryin to give myself a reason, for being around.
    If I was the front porch swing would you let me hang?
    If I was the dance floor would you shake your thing?
    If I was a rubber check would you let me bounce
    Up and down inside your bank account?
    Would ya trust me, not to break you?
    I’m just tryin really hard to make you,
    notice me being around.
    If I was a haircut would you wear a hat?
    If I was a maid, could I clean your flat?
    If I was the carpet would ya wipe your feet,
    In time to save me from mud off the street?
    If you like me, if you love me,
    why don’t you get down on your knees
    and scrub me?
    I’m a little grubby
    From being around.
