Mrs. George Reece – poesia n°89 – Spoon River

TO this generation I would say:
A questa generazione voglio dire:
Memorize some bit of verse of truth or beauty.
memorizzate qualche verso di verità o bellezza.
It may serve a turn in your life.
Potrebbe servirvi una volta nella vita.
My husband had nothing to do
Mio marito non aveva niente a che fare
With the fall of the bank—he was only cashier.
con il fallimento della banca -era soltanto un cassiere.
The wreck was due to the president, Thomas Rhodes,
Il fallimento fu causato dal presidente, Thomas Rhodes,
And his vain, unscrupulous son.
e del suo inutile, non scrupoloso figlio.
Yet my husband was sent to prison,
Tuttavia mio marito fu mandato in prigione,
And I was left with the children,
e io fui lasciata coi bambini,
To feed and clothe and school them.
a nutrirli, vestirli e istruirli.
And I did it, and sent them forth
E lo feci, e li mandai
Into the world all clean and strong,
verso il mondo tutti onesti e forti,
And all through the wisdom of Pope, the poet:
e tutto questo grazie alla saggezza di Pope, il poeta:
“Act well your part, there all the honor lies.”
” Agisci bene di tua parte, in questo consiste tutto l’onore.”
