Nellie Clark – poesia n°61 – Spoon River
Testo inglese con traduzione a fronte

I WAS only eight years old;
Avevo solo otto anni;
And before I grew up and knew what it meant
e prima di crescere e conoscere cosa volesse dire
I had no words for it, except
non avevo parole per esprimerlo, però
That I was frightened and told my Mother;
ero spaventata e lo dissi a mia madre
And that my Father got a pistol
e quindi mio padre aveva la pistola
And would have killed Charlie, who was a big boy,
e avrebbe ucciso Charlie, che era un ragazzo grande,
Fifteen years old, except for his Mother.
di quindici anni, se non fosse stato per sua madre.
Nevertheless the story clung to me.
Ad ogni modo la storia mi si aggrappò
But the man who married me, a widower of thirty-five,
ma l’uomo che mi sposò, un vedovo di 35 anni,
Was a newcomer and never heard it
era un nuovo arrivato e non la sapeva
Till two years after we were married.
fino al secondo anno di matrimonio.
Then he considered himself cheated,
Dopo si considerò truffato
And the village agreed that I was not really a virgin.
e il villaggio sentenziò che non ero realmente vergine.
Well, he deserted me, and I died
Ebbene, mi rifiutò, e dopo morii.
The following winter.
l’inverno successivo.

And the village agreed that I was not really a virgin.
Well, he deserted me, and I died
