On Being a Woman

Why is it, when I am in Rome,
I'd give an eye to be at home,
But when on native earth I be,
My soul is sick for Italy?
And why with you, my love, my lord,
Am I spectacularly bored,
Yet do you up and leave me- then
I scream to have you back again?

O byciu kobietą

Dlaczego jest to tak, że będąc w Rzymie,
Oko bym dała być w swej chałupie,
Lecz będąc w swoim kraju,
Ma dusza do Włoch tęskni jak do raju?
I dlaczego przy Tobie, mój panie, miłości ma,
Znudzona jestem, prawie że wariuję,
Lecz kiedy wstajesz i odchodzisz – z nagła
Że chcę Cię z powrotem się awanturuję?
