Abstract

This poem, here offered in a bilingual version, was written on the occasion of a walk in the Adelasia beech forest in the Beigua Natural Park (Liguria, Italy), and it is part of a poetry collection titled Ecopoems (http://ecopoems. altervista.org). The English translator is Kiawna Brewster, who has worked under the supervision of Barbara Carle (Professor of English at Columbia University). Following the guidelines of the Manifesto of Italian Ecopoetry, the language used here is as simple and humble as the subjects speaking through these poems (animals, plants and the whole Earth). I intend this as a poetic communication which could be intelligible to all cultures, and therefore easy to translate and to widely spread, as wished by the UNESCO message of the World Poetry Day.

 

Resumen

  

Este poema, ofrecido en su versión bilingüe, se escribió aprovechando un paseo por el hayedo Adelasia en el Parque Natural de Beigua (Liguria, Italia), y es parte de una colección de poemas titulada Ecopoems (http://ecopoems.altervista.org Ecopoems). La traductora al inglés es Kiawna Brewster, que ha trabajado bajo la supervisión de Barabar Carle (profesora de inglés en la Universidad de Columbia). Siguiendo las directrices del Manifiesto Italiano de Ecopoesía, el lenguaje usado es tan sencillo y humilde como los sujetos que hablan a través de estos poemas (animales, plantas y toda la Tierra). Tengo la intención de que esta sea una comunicación poética inteligible para todas las culturas y, por lo tanto, fácil de traducir y extender ampliamente, tal y como desea el mensaje del Día Mundial de la Poesía de la UNESCO.
