THE MOON

The moon,  crescent shaped,

scythes the sky,

silver and resplendent.

Never was such a vision seen,

gasps the world.

What beauty, what magnificence!

But it was like that yesterday,

say the wise men,

forever declaiming the truth

from remote mountains,

derided by all until today.

They smile:

We’re all meditators now.

AERONWY THOMAS

LA LUNA

La luna in fase crescente

falcia il cielo,

argentea e risplendente.

Mai ci fu  una simile visione,

esclama attonito il mondo

Che bellezza, che splendore!

Ma era così anche ieri,

dicono i saggi,

che da sempre proclamano la verità

da remote montagne,

 derisi da tutti fino ad oggi.

Essi sorridono:

adesso siamo tutti dediti alla meditazione.
