LONG LIVE THE REBELS


LONG LIVE THE REBELS

Long and gloriously live the rebels
The lunatic gods of nature
The unspoiled dreams
True love that you run into and you happen not to loose

Long and gloriously live the rebels
Those women and men who do not stoop to compromise
the plants, the earth, the toil,
my animals, all hopes,
what I see and like

Long and gloriously live the rebels
those who pursue their goals passionately
those who fight against selfishness
those who do not think they are special
those who think before they talk

Long and gloriously live the rebels
The words that have been ill-treated

And those that have been neglected
the tenses, moods, conjugations
the many books that have been written
those of the past, of today and of tomorrow

Long and gloriously live the rebels
Those who follow no patterns
Those who do not spread falsehood and emotions
Those who live each day unsparingly straining off established habits.

Long and gloriously live the rebels
Sometimes they are weird characters
But it is to them to write history.

translation by Arcangela Rossi
