The Dream / Sogno

English version of Sara Cristofori’s “SOGNO”

Adapted by Carlo Gabbi

THE DREAM

I walk in the boulevard

hand in hand with you.

The smell of the sea

comes from down there.

Just from the bottom

Don’t you hear the waves?

Here is the gate

We’ve to go over.

But it’s closed

and made of steel.

 I turned around

And you’ve disappeared

 overpassing the iron

And also the sea

Had vanished with you!

Had been a stupid dream…

Where the world finished

At the boulevard end

SOGNO

Cammino quel viale

Per mano con te.

Odore di mare

Arriva da giù.

Laggiù proprio in fondo

Non senti le onde?

Però c’è il cancello

Da oltrepassare

È chiuso

È di ferro

Allora mi volto

Ma non ci sei piu`.

Sei oltre quel ferro

E non  c’è neanche

il mare.

Che stupido sogno…

C’è un mondo finito

In fondo a quel viale

Ricordi / Memories

È stato davvero,

non era per gioco.

Il cuore e le stelle

La musica ed il corpo

Il suono francese

Di dolci parole

Le rime composte

Un tempo in Riviera

I pizzi e le sete

Le cene frugali

I film brutti ed allegri

I balli sgraziati

E i baci infiniti…

Non era per gioco

È stato davvero.

MEMORIES by Carlo Gabbi

Sure, it was true,

it wasn’t a play.

The heart, stars,

music and body,

listening to the French sound

of sweet words…

Rimes written at the Riviera,

sometime ago.

Laces and silks,

with frugal dinners,

ugly movies but funny

awful dances

with never ending kisses…

It wasn’t a play.

Sure, it was true!
