Ho visto la Terra partorire Uomini

Di solito la mattina io e mio figlio guardiamo i cartoni animati, ma stamattina no, stamattina c'era un parto in diretta.

Is your soul alive? Then let it feed!
Leave no balconies where you can climb;
Nor milk-white bosoms where you can rest;
Nor golden heads with pillows to share;
Nor wine cups while the wine is sweet;
Nor ecstasies of body or soul,
You will die, no doubt, but die while living
In depths of azure, rapt and mated,
Kissing the queen-bee, Life!

(Edgar Lee Masters, Edmund Pollard in Spoon River Anthology)
