A Book (1286) (Italian translation)


A Book (1286)

There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul!

Un libro (1286)

Non c'è nessuna fregata come un libro
Per portarci via delle terre,
Né i corsari come una pagina
Di una poesia rampante.
Questa traversata può portare i più poveri
Senza imporre il pedaggio;
Com'è frugale il carro
Che porta un'anima umana!
