Giorgio Caproni – Anch’io / I, too

William Blake, Nabucodonosor, 1795

I, too, have tried.
It has all been a war
of fingernails. Now I know.
No one will ever manage
to bore through the earth’s wall.

(Transl. by Ned Condini)

Ho provato anch’io.
E’ stata tutta una guerra
d’unghie.
Ma ora so, Nessuno
potrà mai perforare
il muro della terra.
