A little boy on the lion (Un bimbo sul leone)

traduction en anglais

A little boy on the lion

Versions : #1#2
I'm standing alone at the window,
today is a black and white day;
it will rain.
Melancholic, I search in time
for a dream I already had
years ago.
The frost has drawn blue flowers on the windowpanes.
And a little cloud is coming down from up there;
it splits into two halves just here, in front of me...
So many beautiful colours
in that cloud!
And so many cheerful people!
On a lion there's
a little boy that invites me as well
to ride all the animals,
which can speak like us
and they, laughing, are right to think we are the beasts.
 
There, in the azure meadows, galloping
on black and white horses
I'll play.
On the big coloured wings
of very beautiful butterflies
I'll fly.
Following the ants in single file, I'll march.
Then I'll steal the violin from the cicada and I'll play.
And whoever hears me, will sing with me.
So many beautiful colours
in that cloud!
And so many cheerful people!
On a lion there's
a little boy that invites me as well
to ride all the animals,
which can speak like us
and they, laughing, are right to think we are the beasts.

Un bimbo sul leone

Solo me ne sto alla finestra,
oggi è un giorno in bianco e nero.
Pioverà.
Cerco, malinconico, nel tempo,

I like this translation, and think the other ratings are unfair. What's wrong with paraphrasing?

Raniero     avril 28th, 2015

I got some suggestions and so I improved the translation, although, the "one star" is unfair in my opinion, too. I asked to the voter and she told me that it was not much for the translation quality, but because the song had lost its "poetry"... Please, let me know how I could improve it. Smile

It's good already, but I'll give it a little thought and send you a PM.

Ok, thank you! Smile
