Spoon River – Poesia n°125 Carl Hamblin – traduzione in italiano e testo inglese

THE PRESS of the Spoon River Clarion was wrecked,
La tipografia “Clarion” di Spoon River fu soppressa,
And I was tarred and feathered,
e io riempito di pece e impiumato
For publishing this on the day the Anarchists were hanged in Chicago:
per aver pubblicato nello stesso giorno in cui gli anarchici furono impiccati a Chicago:
“I saw a beautiful woman with bandaged eyes
“Vidi una donna bellissima con gli occhi bendati
Standing on the steps of a marble temple.
stare sopra ai gradini di un tempio di marmo.
Great multitudes passed in front of her,
Una grande moltitudine le passava davanti
Lifting their faces to her imploringly.
prostrando volti imploranti verso lei
In her left hand she held a sword.
nella sua mano sinistra teneva una spada.
She was brandishing the sword,
Brandendo la spada
Sometimes striking a child, again a laborer,
a volte colpiva un bambino, altre un operaio,
Again a slinking woman, again a lunatic.
oppure una donna in fuga, o ancora un folle.
In her right hand she held a scale;
Nella sua mano destra teneva una bilancia;
Into the scale pieces of gold were tossed
dentro alla bilancia venivano gettati pezzi d’oro
By those who dodged the strokes of the sword.
da quelli che scampavano ai fendenti della spada.
A man in a black gown read from a manuscript:
Un uomo vestito di una toga nera leggeva da un manoscritto:
‘She is no respecter of persons.’
“Lei non ha rispetto per le persone.”
Then a youth wearing a red cap
Dopo un giovane dal cappello rosso
Leaped to her side and snatched away the bandage.
balzò al suo fianco e le tolse la benda.
And lo, the lashes had been eaten away
Ed ecco, le ciglia erano state corrose
From the oozy eye-lids;
dalle palpere putrefatte;
The eye-balls were seared with a milky mucus;
le pupille bruciate da un muco lattiginoso;
The madness of a dying soul
la pazzia di un’anima morente
Was written on her face—
era scritta sul suo volto-
But the multitude saw why she wore the bandage.”
fu allora che la moltitudine capì per quale ragione ci fosse la benda.”
