'Parabola'


Ho letto come Chisciotte nel suo girovagare casuale
Giunse un giorno ad un incrocio, e per non offendere
La sorte, non avrebbe deciso quale

Direzione prendere, lasciando tale scelta al suo cavallo.
Perché la gloria si posa ovunque giri il mito.
La sua testa era leggera per l'orgoglio, gli zoccoli del suo cavallo

Pesanti, così puntò verso la stalla.

'Parable' - Poem by Richard Wilbur


I read how Quixote in his random ride
Came to a crossing once, and lest he lose
The purity of chance, would not decide

Whither to fare, but wished his horse to choose.
For glory lay wherever turned the fable.
His head was light with pride, his horse's shoes

Were heavy, and he headed for the stable.

Sounds like a horse I used to ride. It liked lush fields. Hard to get its head up! Loved both the italian and English translations. Tom Billsborough
