ALBA PHAROLERIERS
 
The lighters of dawn are coming.
Beyond the curve of the road, your words
baptized with beer anteced to dust
and to the swing of bodies linked in singing.
Cheap denim shirts are open;
a glass, hot and unique, drips for all:
 
Escape through neighbouring villages.
Escape into the heart of the girls.
Escape in the sweat of horses.
And in the bloom of those eternal parks
we will be blessed every night,
as the rain is blessed in may parties.
Escape through neighbouring villages.
Escape into the heart of the girls.
Escape in the sweat of horses.
 
Even my mobile watch station between the trees,
comes the loud singing of the lighters of dawn;
they climb with their trovas to the mill and move toward the sky,
and the echo of their voices draws the cloud of the South.
 
On the secret path that begins to get wet,
the lanterns sing until the bird s’ flight.
 
 
 
AT THE PALM DOORS
 
Harder than the noon sun, long ago
we played with lights on secret roads.
 
Without fear we returned to the Pre
– liner that lights the blush of girls –
and the tone of a voice, the image of heroes,
the reflection of that city in lontanza,
They made us equally naive and happy and different.
 
There we ran each one his own way.
We kept on clarity of the tropics
the travel of myths through the blue sky.
The lanterns sang new music,
the flight of birds, sweat of horses.
We were looking for the edges of the earth
and the luck of an afternoon at sea view.
 
We were Greek, not so tall,
without those noses the dust made perfect.
And the dream we recorded was sincere
in the fibrous wood of palm doors:
 
Parents, don’t tie us up
to the heavy immobility of a mast.
Better than the skillful Odysseus,
we can look straight at the mirage
not forgetting the road to Ithaca.
