The Shining Host - Poem by Gabriela Mistral

In vain you try
To smother my song:
A million children
In chorus sing it
Beneath the sun!

In vain you try
To break my verse
Of affliction:
The children sing it
Under God!

    The Shining Host

    In vain you try
    To smother my song:
    A million children
    In chorus sing it
    Beneath the sun!

    In vain you try
    To break my verse
    Of affliction:
    The children sing it
    Under God!


    - in ITALIAN:

    L'ospite brillante

    Invano cerchi
    Di soffocare la mia canzone:
    Un milione di bambini
    La cantano in coro
    Sotto il sole!

    Invano cerchi
    Di interrompere i miei versi
    Di dolore:
    I bambini li cantano
    Sotto Dio!
