If we were children

Little girl alone, trees in background, fotografo milano…If we were children we might climb,
Catch the rooks sleeping, and break no twig,
And, after the soft ascent,
Thrust out our heads above the branches
To wonder at the unfailing stars…

…Se fossimo bambini potremmo arrampicarci,
Sorprendere nel sonno le cornacchie, senza spezzare un rametto,
E, dopo l’agile ascesa,
Cacciare la testa al disopra dei rami
Per ammirare stupiti le immancabili stelle…
_ Dylan Thomas (Being but men, excerpt) _
