I Chase, Always.....

 

The bird hardly perches,

The welcoming wave recedes,

The breeze never halts,

Can't catch the sunbeams.

 

The fortnightly visitor silver,

Behind the clouded skies

 Plays hide and seek.

 

Empty-handed,

Hope-ridden,

Stretching my hand,

I chase, always.

 

Amita Sanghvi

 

 

Io sono sempre in cerca ...

 

L'uccello si posa a stento,

L'onda di benvenuto si allontana,

La brezza non si ferma mai

Non riesco a prendere i raggi del sole.

 

L'argenteo visitatore quindicinale 

Dietro i cieli nuvolosi

Gioca a nascondino.

 

A mani vuote,

Piena di speranza,

Allungo la mia mano

Io sono in cerca, sempre.

(Italian translation by Lidia Chiarelli)
