I Wish

I wish I could deliver

words that could sooth the sorrow,

or at least ease the horror

of our collective dread.

I no longer think words are enough.

Let me hold you instead.

  1. Vorrei
    Vorrei poter recapitare
    parole che sappiano lenire il dolore,
    o almeno alleviare l’orrore
    del nostro terrore collettivo.
    Penso che non siano più sufficienti.
    Lascia che ti abbracci invece.
    Dear Richard, I have translated your beautiful poem into Italian, and I will publish it in my Sunday Gioielli Rubbati column on January 29th, greetings from Italy
