"A peach tree in blossoms
on a large commercial poster
reminds me that it is spring,
[Graffiti I once read in an underground station in Milan.]
As a child I wanted to cure cherry trees
when, red for the fruits, I thought they were bleeding
for me, health had left them
with the white blossoms they had lost.
It was a dream, it was a dream, which lasted for long
that was why I decided to become a doctor:
it was neither for a God, nor for a game
rather, I just wanted the cherry trees to blossom again."
[F. De Andre' "The doctor"]
Giro, vivo, in equilibrio su un filo
leggera come un coriandolo
sopra i tuoi occhi che danzano
e amami adesso perchè all'alba ripartirò. "
[Ilaria Porceddu "In equilibrio"]
