Poesia n°74 – Blind Jack – Spoon River

Traduzione in italiano con testo inglese a fronte

Blind Jack – Jack il cieco

I HAD fiddled all at the county fair.
Avevo suonato per tutta la fiera della contea.
But driving home “Butch” Weldy and Jack McGuire,
Ma tornando a casa “Butch” Weldy e Jack McGuire,
Who were roaring full, made me fiddle and fiddle
che erano completamente brilli, mi fecere suonare e risuonare
To the song of Susie Skinner, while whipping the horses
la canzone dii Susie Skinner, mentre frustavano i cavalli
Till they ran away.
finchè non scapparono via.
Blind as I was, I tried to get out
Cieco come ero, provai a saltare via
As the carriage fell in the ditch,
mentre la carrozza precipitava nel dirupo,
And was caught in the wheels and killed.
e rimasi incastrato nelle ruote e ucciso.
There’s a blind man here with a brow
C’è un uomo cieco qui con una fronte
As big and white as a cloud.
così grande e bianca da sembrare una nuvola.
And all we fiddlers, from highest to lowest,
E tutti noi suonatori, dai migliori ai peggiori
Writers of music and tellers of stories,
scrittori di musica e narratori di storie,
Sit at his feet,
sediamo ai suoi piedi,
And hear him sing of the fall of Troy.
e lo ascoltiamo mentre canta della caduta di Troia.
