POETRY WORKSHOP AT PAINSHILL

You blend into the autumnal colours
reds, orange, yellow and brown.
The sweeping boughs of trees
conceal you.
At first
your voice cannot be heard
above the wind
the crunch of dead leaves
the thud of conkers
as you fight to read out loud
ruins, follies, lakes, vineyards
your words fluttering
the wind competing.
But leaves and poems
colours and sounds of Autumn
will have their way…

AERONWY THOMAS LABORATORIO DI POESIA A
PAINSHILL

Ti fondi nei colori autunnali
rossi, arancio, giallo e marrone.
I rami ondeggianti degli alberi
ti nascondono.
Dapprima
la tua voce non può essere udita
sopra del vento
lo scricchiolio delle foglie morte
il tonfo delle castagne d’India
mentre tu lotti per leggere forte
di rovine, ruderi, laghi e vigneti
le tue parole fluttuano
il vento ti contrasta.
Ma foglie e poesie
colori e suoni d’autunno
troveranno la loro strada…
