The Waiting Place

“L’amore non è un sentimento, è capacità.”
L’amore secondo Dan di Peter Hedges

“Anche un orologio rotto è giusto due volte al giorno”
Lewis Carroll

The Waiting Place…

…for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or a No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a sting of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.
Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss)

Das Glück ist wie ein Stern, so nah, und doch so fern
(La felicità è come una stella, così vicina e allo stesso tempo così distante, purtoppo in italiano si perde la rima…)
da Melitta

La prima e l’ultima sono particolarmente belle
