new poetry in translation

in other tongues

In recent years, I have had the privilege of having my efforts translated in various languages. It in tribute to these ardent readers and linguists that I will over the next few days reproduce their labours.


il tempo e` essenziale
(commissionata dall'Arts Council of England per ' Waiting Rooms ')

il tempo e` essenziale

la speranza e` frutto della pazienza,

difficile venire a un compromesso

ma e` facile pensarlo

allora a che scopo affrettarsi tanto?

Roi Kwabena

Translation by Emmanuela Righetti
